Ensemble La Cigale

Heading Towards Celtic Lands

The cicada grows quietly in secret before revealing the full beauty of its song for everyone's delectation. In the well-known fable, the ant ridiculed the cicada that provided nothing but the sharing of its music. But the nasty ant had perhaps forgotten how song lightens the burden of work, encourages you to dream, to delight, to love, and also to cry…


Formed in 2006 in Montreal, the ancient music group La Cigale takes its name from this wonderful singer and in turn provides a musical journey to everyone who comes to listen. La Cigale is dedicated to the rediscovery of Renaissance and Baroque music repertoires performed with period instruments. Its mission is to connect scholarly and traditional styles, explore the links between literature and music and make forgotten masterpieces accessible to the public. La Cigale's musicians are renowned for their engaging performances and for the complicity they develop with their audiences.


Finalist for the 2013 Opus Prize for their Tiorba Obbligata album, the members of La Cigale invite you to join them in an unforgettable trip through time and space.


The performers : Madeleine Owen, lute and theorbo; Sara Lackie, Baroque harp; Marie-Laurence Primeau, viola da gamba; Vincent Lauzer, recorders; and/or Sari Tsuji, Baroque violin.
