La vie musicale dans les lieux de cultes à Strasbourg au XVIIIe siècle

Abstract : The Alsatian cultural landscape has always been marked by the region’s rich musical life. Jean-Luc Gester’s study La musique religieuse en Alsace au XVIIe siècle lays the foundations for a history of music in the religious sphere, but also of the diffusion and reception of Italian music, more particularly in Strasbourg. From 1681 onwards, with the attachment of Strasbourg to France, an intense musical activity began to develop and continued throughout the eighteenth century. At this period, a number of churches were restored to Catholic worship; nevertheless, the Protestants retained the rights guaranteed them by the Peace of Westphalia, namely freedom of worship and continued ownership of their possessions, with the exception of the cathedral. Roman Catholicism was in the process of reconstruction in a city with a strong Protestant presence. In a situation unique in France, the musical traditions of the two confessions were forced to coexist. Strasbourg was henceforth to enjoy moments of glory following its union with France, including the proxy marriage of Louis XV and Marie Leszcznska in the cathedral in 1725 and the visits of Louis XV in 1744 and Marie-Antoinette in 1770. A number of other events marked the city’s existence over the course of the century and thus also had an impact on musical life
