Octonaires de la vanité du monde

Paschal de l’Estocart et Claude Lejeune

Brochures and technical specifications

The Octonaires are a collection of spiritual poems written by Antoine de Chandieu. Participating in the Protestant spirituality, they were masterfully set to music in the late Renaissance by Claude Le Jeune and his lesser known contemporary composer, Paschal de l'Estocart. They both used a sophisticated polyphony, already steeped in the expressiveness of humanism, which would lend prestige to monody again at the beginning of the XVIIth century. This program will be an opportunity for Faenza to continue exploring the Protestant repertoire of the late 16th century, using the literary approach and contextualization work that characterizes their programs.
