Music of Marc-Antoine Charpentier

The French noël represents a tradition of popular Christmas celebration and rich source of melodies that became a preoccupation of French composers.  The concert will feature Charpentier’s delightful Messe de Minuit (‘Midnight Mass’), written perhaps for Christmas 1694, based on ten of these popular carol melodies. The program will include the In Nativitatem Domini, H.416, Charpentier’s most substantial dramatic oratorio for the Christmas season.
