Founded in 1974, Les Pastoureaux (literally “The Little Shepherds”) is a boys’ choir from Waterloo, Belgium. It’s composed of more than 50 boys, aged 7 to 15 years old, ranging in timbre from soprano to alto. About 20 young men form the tenor and bass sections. With more than 1000 concerts given in Belgium but also during tours around the world (all over Europe, North and South America, Japan), Les Pastoureaux have acquired an exceptional experience and an international reputation. These experiences have led them to sing alongside José Van Dam and to be invited by the Royal Family of Belgium. Some Pastoureaux soloists have sung at the Théâtre Royal de la Monnaie (Brussels) and at the Brooklyn Opera (New York). Les Pastoureaux’s repertoire is vast. It includes not only works of great classical masters (e.g. Bach, Händel, Haydn, Mozart, Schubert, Mendelssohn, Franck, Saint-Saëns, Fauré), but also those of older composers (e.g. Schütz, Pachelbel, Allegri) or more modern (e.g. Gershwin, Poulenc, Britten), as well as some less known works from the Middle Ages or the Renaissance. Several CDs have already been successfully recorded. Among them are Mozart’s Coronation Mass and Requiem, Haydn’s Nelson Mass, Fauré’s Requiem and Christmas carols.
