Discover the world of eunuchs, professionals of baroque singing, summoned by the Sun King to Versailles – These magnificent voices were in fashion throughout Europe, and Louis XIV, who especially loved music, brought a large number of them to the court of France to embellish the religious services with their spectacular voices.  Their house is now home to the Union compagnonnique, and you can also admire a magnificent collection of masterpieces of the Compagnons du Tour de France.
