Ararat

A musical dialogue between France and Armenia

 

2015 was the centenary of the Armenian Genocide. In order to commemorate such a painful event, Canticum Novum has decided to create an intercultural dialogue between France and Armenia. Let us precise that these countries have been closely related since the XIIIth century when the House of Lusignan ruled the kingdoms of Cyprus, Jerusalem and Armenia. That’s how Leon II de Lusignan was crowned King of Armenia in 1252. The influence of the Lusignan family was to last until the end of the kingdom of Armenia (1375). The cultural exchanges that prevailed at the Armenian court in the XIIIth century are being revived by Canticum Novum. In the repertoire that the ensemble has worked out, the most luminous pieces of music echo each other through messages of peace and mutual respect.

• Armenian liturgical and popular music
• Music of the Kingdom of Jerusalem
• French Music: Estampies and Royal Dances
Le Manuscript du Roi ca. 1270-1320
