Whether it is festive or spiritual, militant or lighthearted, music or more specifically singing represents a particularly strong medium of identification and expression of belonging to a community, whether it is occasional or already established.

This online exhibition invites you to discover a selection of resources which reflect the variety of collections of the Université Catholique de Lille, from songs of God’s people to folk songs from the North of France.

Enjoy discovering our treasure!


This online exhibition has been created by the University Library Vauban – Université Catholique de Lille, as a part of the Nuit des Bibliothèques 2021 event (October 8 to Octobre 10 2021). This year’s theme is music.
