ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Christmas in South Louisiana is a special time, different from Christmas anywhere else: it is alligator season, the bayous are quiet, the tallow trees finally turn red, and we all hope for a cool Christmas! No figgy pudding for us: bring us the fig preserves, carve the cochon de lait, serve the rice dressing and fruit cake and listen to the New Year's toasts and laughter.

RENAISSANCE CADIENNE invites you to share the spirit of the old days, a time filled with bonfires ... "Ave Maria" at midnight mass... the réveillon and Christmas dinner ... New Year's day toasts and revelry.

Renaissance Cadienne takes you back in time and leads you in some new directions as well. Cajun fusion? Pair a Huron Indian song with a carol from the French Renaissance. Mix Bach into the Cajun repertoire, Add a New Orleans song about death and rebirth to Afro-Creole Canray Fontenot's "Bonjour Bonne Année." Let us take you to Chartres cathedral to remind us all of what the season is about. Joyeux Noël, mes amis!

Comme toutes les autres saisons, la saison de Noël en Louisiane est unique: pas de traineaux, pas de skis, pas de neige, mais plus de chaleur et plus d'ouragans. Les alligators ne bougent presque pas dans les bayous tranquilles, Les arbres à poule finissent par rougir en attendant la fraîcheur de Noël. C'est vraiment MINUIT CHRETIEN-pour nous, MINUIT CADIEN. C'est le moment de la messe de minuit , du réveillon, des toasts de la nouvelle année.

Renaissance Cadienne vous amène dans le temps et vous fait prendre de nouvelles pistes: Les chants de Chartres, une chanson en langue huronne, une fusion de la musique classique , le folklore Cadien Louisianais, un chant sublime de la cathédrale de Chartres. Tout y est.
Joyeux Noel, mes amis.
