Join Early Opera Company for a festive concert featuring three of Charpentier’s most popular works.

The exquisite Messe de minuit pour Noël uses traditional Christmas carols in a unique setting of the Midnight Mass liturgy, and the Pastoral In nativitatem recounts the very night of Jesus’s birth. The celebratory Te Deum is a joyous explosion of colour, featuring the famous ‘Marche en Rondeau’.
