A new challenge

The latest Rocamadour Musique Sacrée initiative is a new record label to promote artists and projects through physical and digital distribution beyond the Festival and even beyond our national borders. The label is already recording several albums a year. One contains performances by Ensemble la Sportelle (the Rocamadour Musique Sacrée vocal group), another is in partnership with organ students at the Paris Conservatoire (CNSM) and further projects vary depending on proposals made.

Artistic continuity

Keen to carry the appeal of Rocamadour beyond the Festival, the label reaches out to other audiences while demonstrating the vitality of the sacred repertoire. Inaugurated with an organ recital by Emmeran Rollin, Vibrance #1, it also includes Stella Maris, an album based on Hildegard von Bingen and the French song cycle Contes Mystiques. The latter project, led by tenor Enguerrand de Hys and pianist Paul Beynet, came to fruition thanks to support over several years, a long-term collaboration that reflects the label’s commitment to creating powerful dialogues between the past and the present.

Spreading the Rocamadour magic

These recordings also extend the Rocamadour experience. Not only do they feature Festival musicians, but also the outstanding acoustics at different locations that serve as the label’s sonic hallmark, plus the unique timbre of the Daldosso organ at Saint-Sauveur Basilica. What’s more, videos are released to accompany each new album. These combine the musical experience with the dizzying beauty of the setting as a testimony to Rocamadour’s magical atmosphere.
