Love and War

Les Souls deAmourLove has always been a battlefield, even many centuries ago, and in their third season, les soûls d'amour explore the many ways that the trials of war and the travails of love intersect and collide. Featuring tales of tragedy, triumph, loss, and death--as well as several songs of war.

Telling stories from the Renaissance and Baroque as you’ve never heard them before, les soûls d’amour are equally comfortable in the church, the concert hall, and the coffeeshop. With innovative arrangements and unique instrumentation, these soûls sing tales of love, loss, and the joys of a good drink with friends. www.facebook.com/lessoulsdamour
