Jean-Charles Adami“Village sociability and rural reconquest through the experience of the brotherhood di a Serra “.

For nearly thirty years the brotherhoods of Corsica have sought to reconstitute themselves and reappropriate their sung repertoire. Jean-Charles Adami will share with us his journey and experience as a singer and brotherhood.

As of the 1990s, the confraternity was reconstituted on the basis of pre-existing structures that had ceased their activities at the end of the 1950s.
Despite this break in confraternity practices, the songs had as for them maintained for those falling under the common of the mass of the living. The absence of confraternity having weakened the ritualization of the religious life, many ceremonies had disappeared or did not give place to any particular liturgical animation.

The initial work of the confraternity di a Serra was therefore concerned with the restoration and practice of a vast repertoire covering all the annual devotional practices (holy week, laude and all the para-liturgical songs of Tuscan expression). The work was also to include the complete restitution of the repertoire of the Mass of the Dead. This reappropriation was made on the basis of a collection from the oldest cantors of the pieve, themselves confreres and heirs of these cantorial traditions.

The intervention at the Museum of Corsica aims to specify the operational modalities of this reappropriation and its consequences on confraternal life since.
