La Dame Blanche (Girault - Guillard Quartet)

Singers Pierre Guillard and Sylvain Girault, beautifully accompanied by the flute of Erwan Hamon, the oud and the doublebass of Fabien Gillé, present an acoustic album entitled 'La Dame Blanche', based on a popular repertoire of legendary songs.

Christmas carols or Passion girls miraculously changed into a white doe lament of the Prodigal quests or May, these texts within the Christian medieval mythology. They are the intersection of biblical and pagan beliefs, writings Christians and pagan oral. They are not hymns sung in the context of worship, but many popular songs from the French oral tradition. The melodies that carry them are beautiful, clear, timeless. Therefore, beyond the great heritage and symbolic of these songs, we let ourselves go and be captivated by their beauty, strangeness, and the spirituality that emerged.
