Biography

Blessed with a voice whose bright top register and powerful low register blend with a miraculous smoothness which many singers only achieve after years of hard work, Gerard Lesne began travelling across Europe with the Clemencic Consort. It was only in 1991 that he moved on from the medieval repertory, having taken part in the rediscovery of Gregorian chant with Ensemble Organum, got a taste of French Baroque music with William Christie and Les Arts Florissants (from 1984 to 1990) and J.S. Bach with Philippe Herreweghe (from 1988 to 1992).
