Passiontide Concert

Les Idées heureuses brings to life the musical visions of two holy women: Caterina Vigri (1413-1463), canonized Saint Catherine of Bologna, and Catherine Longpré, also known as the Blessed Mother Catherine of St. Augustine (1632-1668), of the Religious Hospitallers of Saint Joseph. A fine musician, Catherine Longpré arrived in Quebec at the age of 16, while Caterina Vigri is the instigator of the first violin in history to be made as the result of a dream. A copy of this instrument will be heard in this concert.
