Ensemble Masques

A great weekend of music ahead with the Montreal Baroque Festival. This pre-festival concert was performed by Ensemble Masques. Wonderful music by Rameau and de Mondonville, played so beautifully. Montreal was founded in 1642. This music dates from the early to mid 18th century. I can imagine it may have been played here in Montreal in the salons of the elite. It certainly fits with the atmosphere of Chapelle Notre-dame-de-Bonsecours.
