Jacques BARBIER's literary crush

Jacques BARBIER's literary crush
LES PASSIONS DU CHŒUR by Bernadette Lespinard, Fayard, 2018


I hardly ever read such a book. A book with soinformation gathered about music. This is the result of an incredible eruditioncombined with a beautiful writing style for a very nice time spent reading.

This is a very unusual subject, because itdeals only with choral singing and unaccompanied choral singing. An incrediblenumber of composers, societies, choirs and male-voice choral societies came outbetween 1800 and 1950 and that put a spotlight on the buzzing musical activityin the mind of French people.

This book is totally fascinating, and I reallywant to thank Bernadette Lespinard for it.
