Midnight to Sunrise

This 83rd concert season begins with a strikingly different twosome: the Midnight Mass by the Baroque composer Marc-Antoine Charpentier and the Sunrise Mass by the contemporary Norwegian composer Ola Gjeilo. The first, based almost entirely on French Christmas carol melodies (noëls), is joyous with a dance-like quality. The second features a double-chorus and string orchestra that create wondrous other-worldly choral and orchestral sounds.

For an introduction to the Fall Concert's program, listen via YouTube to a 2014 Midnight Mass performance by Deutsch-Französischer Chor Dresden und Chorsolisten and a 2016 Sunrise Mass performance by Chór Music Everywhere.
