《开怀集》-巴黎木十字儿童合唱团

In the summer of 1906, two young students, Pierre Martin and Paul Berthier (Father of the composer Jacques Berthier and grandfather of France Gall), were on vacation in the abbey of Tamié in Savoy. They came up a "dream" which plans to start a maîtrise (choir school) for child choristers that would travel from church to church, town to town, to carry the living testimony of the authentic tradition of religious music.

The Little Singers of Paris

Their dream came true in the next year. Despite the lack of money, their enthusiasm brought them to settle in an old dwelling in Paris suburb and they started to receive their first scholar. This was the birth of the Little Singers of Paris. The first rehearsal took place on 10 January 1907 and the first concert was held in the Parish Church of the Kings of France, St-Germain l'Auxerrois in October in the same year. It was well-received by music lovers in Paris. The Little Singers of Paris were soon become popular throughout France. In contrast to the music style in vogue at the time, the quality of the choir's singing and the purity of the young voices aroused astonishment and enthusiasm in the audience.
