Christmas Pastorale

Music Before 1800 offers a refreshingly different December program: the Christmas Pastorale by Marc-Antoine Charpentier. The work tells the nativity story, blending the shepherds’ naïveté with the gravity of Jesus’ birth. It is performed by the superb Ensemble Correspondances, a relatively young group begun in 2009 that has been called “alarmingly sensual” by the press. It already boasts nine prize-winning CDs.

“One of France’s best new early music groups, Ensemble Correspondances shows total understanding of his [Charpentier’s] idiom and achieves a perfect balance of clean but expressive voices with crisp and precise instrumental ensemble. Their intensity is alarmingly sensual.” —The Guardian
