A French Baroque Christmas (St Paul)

A Christmas tradition centuries in the making

Experience the beauty and joy of the Christmas season with a selection of works written for Christmas by Marc-Antoine Charpentier. The concert centers on Charpentier’s Pastorale sur la Naissance (“Pastoral on the birth of Christ”), one of the most captivating and imaginative examples of sacred French-language Baroque drama. Charpentier’s In nativitatem explores the experience the shepherds might have that fateful day.

From shepherds and recorders to famous French noëls you can sing with us, you’ll be part of the newest Christmas tradition in the region.

Pre-concert talk begins at approximately 6:45pm.
