As part of its aim to preserve the universality of European music, the Fondation Etrillard decided to support the Royaumont Foundation to widen the reach of medieval music. The project funds research using new technologies, trains artists in medieval music interpretation, and presents the music to a wider public.
One of the Fondation Etrillard’s key activities is professional training in medieval vocals. These workshops combine the digital transcription of medieval repertoires with the study of their sources by specialists. New technologies are being used to promote historical music, reflecting the Foundation’s mission.

To broadcast the works, several concerts were organised in France (Abbaye de Royaumont, Abbaye de Fontfroide), Switzerland (Temple de Saint Gervais in Geneva) and Italy (Spello) to give the public the opportunity to enjoy the result.

The Fondation Etrillard helps to widen audiences for little-known repertoires with other Swiss and European partners, including Geneva’s Haute Ecole de Musique, the Schola Cantorum Baseliensis, the Centro Studio Adolfo Broegg in Spello, and the Alamire Foundation in Leuven.
