About

New Brunswick’s Louisbourg Choir presents an original and exceptional recording of Acadian folksongs on the theme of love. The programme is drawn from the collections Chansons folkloriques d’Acadie, La fleur du rosier and Chansons d’Acadie Collection, with a cappella motets by Jacotin Le Bel (c.1495 – c.1556). This French Renaissance composer drew ideas and inspiration from popular tunes and folksongs of his era

Chansons d’amour d’Acadie et de France also features the Skye Consort performing Acadian folksongs that Sean Dagher has arranged for the early instrument ensemble: Alex Kehler (violin, nykelharpa), Sean Dagher (cittern), Amanda Keesmaat (cello), and Pierre-Alexandre Saint-Yves (recorder, chalumeau, and Rauschpfeife).

Founded in 2006, the Louisbourg Choir, under the direction of Monique Richard, has quickly become established in New Brunswick’s cultural landscape. While the Louisbourg Choir has distinguished itself by specializing in early music, it also occasionally embraces other musical periods. The choir has worked with renowned conductors such as the late Christopher Jackson, Alexander Weimann, Denis Gautheyrie, and more recently, Andrew McAnerney.
