Bourbon Baroque “specializes in the historically informed performance of the 17th and 18th-century music inspired by the art and culture of the royal House of Bourbon,” said a statement from the

Ursulines. The Ursuline manuscript is a collection of music written in France in 1727 and brought to New Orleans, La., around that time by a group of Ursuline sisters, according to Austin Clark, one of the founders of Bourbon Baroque.
