Musique pour Marie-Josephte, dite La Corrivaux

Early Music

The hanging of Marie-Josephte Corrivaux still resonates today thanks to various authors who turned her character into a witch. Historical research now shows that it was rather the most sordid circumstances in a pivotal moment of our history that led her to the gallows in 1763. This tragic story made an impression on a society on the verge of great changes. The ensemble J’ay pris amours wanted to recreate the musical backdrop of that particular time by drawing inspiration from the Old World as well as from the New World. What kind of music did these authors listen to at the time?
