Notes and Editorial Reviews

Two Quebec music groups, one roots, one classical, dig into the sea-going past of their culture, and find common ground in songs of the 18th century.

Les Charbonniers de l'Enfer (Coal-sellers from hell) specializes in research and performance of the repertoire of the oral traditions, which is an academic way of describing a very exciting group of musicians. (Reminding some listeners of the ensemble, La Bottine Souriante). La Nef (The nave) founded in 1991, seeks to bring audiences of all ages to a new understanding of Early Music. La Nef offers innovative, poetic, and frequently dramatic performances. Together the groups merge in this "miraculous" journey in sound.
