Castelginest. The Canticel concert sublimated the church

The New Year’s show, performed by the Canticel duo, won over the people of Castelgineste. In the superb church filled with many music lovers, Canticel told the wonderful story of Christmas in music, from the Annunciation to the flight into Egypt, including the arrival of the Magi, keeping the public spellbound throughout. warm evening. The two artists offered a fascinating musical journey through the most diverse atmospheres of the world and centuries from Argentina to Catalonia.

The great richness of the voice of contralto Catherine Dagois also offered a powerful expressive intensity, the organ sounding just as admirably in finely colored registers, under the virtuoso fingers of Edgar Teufel. At the end of each piece, the exceptionally sustained applause showed the enthusiasm of the listeners. The anthology of famous Christmas carols, created by Edgar, was particularly appreciated. A little surprise in encore, a nativity song from the Catalan Renaissance where Edgar, in duet with Catherine, showed his talents as a singer, and ended up winning the enthusiasm of the deeply moved audience, who gratified them with long standing ovations. The municipality offered a sumptuous bouquet to the singer, as a closing.

“This concert was a great pleasure for us, surely even more this time given the difficult period that we are all going through, public and artists”, confided Catherine. And Edgar added: “We felt very strongly this joy of meeting and sharing a moment of music and human warmth. This beautiful atmosphere in our magnificent church so admirably renovated and maintained by the municipality carried us. We can’t wait to come back.”

And the public awaits this with great impatience.
