The Villefranche de Rouergue’s ‘Pénitents Noirs’ (Black Penitents) treasure is also a ‘musical treasure’. It includes a collection of handwritten scores along with musical instruments – among which a remarkable serpent - which testify to the pomp of the great ceremonies and processions throughout the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries. Long silenced but now restored thanks to the work of Jean-Christophe Maillard, the late Toulouse musicologist, and of the conductor Rolandas Muleika, the chosen motets have been given a new life.
