Christmas Pastorale
The Christmas period has long provided an occasion for composers to depict both a glorious birth and maternal tenderness. In the 17th century, Marc-Antoine Charpentier portrayed, in a charming opera, the innocence and contemplation that characterize the shepherds’ visit to the manger.

Ensemble Correspondances, eight singers and eight instrumentalists specializing in French music from the 17th century, performs this splendid music featured on their latest recording, described by critics as a pure gem. This will be their first concert in Quebec.
