Carols at Midnight:
French Christmas Music 1500-1700

A cornucopia of French Christmas music for voices, viols, harp and organ. Serene liturgies from the Burgundian court mingle with late Renaissance and early Baroque carols and dances. A candlelit performance of Charpentier’s beloved Messe de Minuit is the centerpiece of our evening.

A translation of the play can be viewed here and downloaded here.
