4 in a Bar explores a millennium of French music. Join us at the for motets by Machaut, and then stroll along the Champs-Élysées with Joe Dassin. Hear Gabriel Fauré at the salon, Francis Poulenc at the Sainte-Chappelle. Man the barricades with Boublil & Schönberg, and finish at Notre Dame cathedral with some reflections from its most famous resident.

4 in a Bar is a vocal quartet with Classical roots and a modern, close-harmony approach to performance
and interpretation. The group is known for its masterful performance of an eclectic repertoire, including Renaissance polyphony, European madrigals, contemporary commissions, folk songs, pop, barbershop and traditional Irish airs arranged by Eoin Conway, heard on two available CD albums.
