Voce Chamber Singers presents: In Deepest Midnight
Voce joins forces with the players of Ensemble Gaudior, a period-instrument ensemble based in Oakton, to present one of the true gems of the Christmas repertoire: the exquisite Messe de Minuit (Midnight Mass) by the French baroque composer, Marc-Antoine Charpentier.
Based upon traditional French carols, Charpentier’s masterpiece captures the many moods of the season from joyful exuberance, to awestruck wonder, to peaceful contemplation. The first half of our program offers seasonal a cappella works by composers from the 16th century to the present, and the concert closes with a festive audience sing-along accompanied by baroque orchestra!
A reception for all ticket holders follows both concerts.
