Les Rugissants present ARCHES, a series which deals with architecture and music. In this episode, we will introduce you to the Madonna di Pompei Church.
Built in the Saint-Michel district of Montreal, the church, completed in 1967, stands out for its innovative structure that reflects the Italian attraction for free and flexible forms. It is in this luminous setting that Les Rugissants perform Ave Maria” by Giuseppe Verdi, who used the scala enigmatica”, an asymmetrical scale to structure the four sections of his work.
