Founded in 1985 by the French countertenor Gérard Lesne, Il Seminario Musicale is a Baroque music ensemble. Since 1990, the group has been resident of the Fondation de l'abbaye de Royaumont, thirty kilometres north of Paris. Their repertoire centers around 17th- and 18th-century Italian and French music, including that of Monteverdi, Cavalli, Vivaldi, Couperin and Charpentier.[1]

Gérard Lesne's focus lies on Italian and French music of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.
