An advanced workshop
for choral singers

Choir performing at end-of-course concert in 2007

Spend a week singing and getting to know the historically rich Languedoc countryside in the south of France....

Mattefer Music Weeks offered an exciting opportunity for British-based musicians to sing in a small chamber choir, while staying at the Domaine de Mattefer wine estate in the Languedoc region of Southern France, only a 10-minute drive from the lovely old town of Narbonne. Courses were run from 2006 to 2010.

Mattefer Music was originally set up by Michael Sibley and Neil Mackenzie, to be run at Michael's summer residence in Languedoc. Sadly, following Michael's death we will be unable to return to Mattefer, but we are retaining this website in tribute to Michael's work and vision. Neil is currently finalising details for similar courses in the UK, and is working on proposals for a new venue in France in 2012. If you would be interested in attending a future course please email Neil at
