Airs de Coeur (court songs) were popular among the nobility in 17th and 18th century France. Their content varied from love songs to pastoral songs to drinking songs. The songs were sung in the salons of the court, where people enjoyed music while enjoying stories and drinks. We will present a concert of such songs mixed with Christmas songs that were popular in France at that time. We hope you will have a pleasant time.
