Christopher Gibert

After studying organ, piano, musical analysis and composition at the Toulouse Conservatoire, Christopher Gibert went on to receive a premier prix with distinction in choral conducting. At the same time he graduated from the University of Toulouse-Jean Jaurès with a degree in musicology.

Organist for the past ten years of the sanctuary of Rocamadour, he is now in charge of the new organ of Saint-Sauveur. He is currently specialising in the religious works of Marc-Antoine Charpentier, a key figure in seventeenth century French music, at Paris-Sorbonne University, the Centre de Musique Baroque de Versailles and the Boulogne Billancourt Early Music Centre. As a member of the Choeur Grégorien de Paris, he is deepening his knowledge of the Gregorian repertoire.

Choral conducting is undoubtedly Christopher Gibert’s greatest passion. With his two ensembles, the chamber choir Dulci Jubilo, created in 2013, and the ensemble La Pellegrina, formed at Rocamadour in 2016 and specialising in Baroque, he explores the possibilities of sound and different vocal combinations, as well as prosody and diction.
