Musical direction

François-Xavier Lacroux, Musical director
 

Trained initially in violin and flute from an early age, Lacroux has devoted himself almost exclusively to early music for 15 years through voice and his work as a harpsichordist and organist. He is in touch with internationally prominent figures in early music including, Pablo Colino in Rome, Olivier Schneebeli in Versailles, and Marcel Pérès in Moissac and Paris. Through these connections, Lacroux works on furthering his study of the voice and his research of ancient manuscripts and their interpretations. He specializes in Cantus Planus gregorian music and modal music. He is the founder of the Chantres de Saint-Hilaire and is currently the acting Musical Director. He teaches early music at the CRI in Langon (Gironde). He is the organist and flute soloist for the Verdelais Basilica (Gironde) .
