The treasure of the Black Penitents of Villefranche-de-Rouergue is also a musical ‘treasure’: a beautiful collection of scores, mostly handwritten, as well as musical instruments, notably a remarkable serpent, which testify to the pomp of the great ceremonies and processions of the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries.

In the sumptuous setting of the chapel of this famous brotherhood, the great festivals were celebrated in music.

These motets chosen and restored today emerge from a long and profound silence.
