Contemplate the meaning of the Virgin Mary in this luminous concert offering two composers’ takes on this sacred icon of motherhood and mercy.
The figure of Mary, mother of Jesus, is central to this program of French choral music spanning almost three centuries. The lyricism and expressive power of Charpentier’s final mass, Missa Assumpta est Maria, is paired with lustrous a cappella works by the 20th-century composer Poulenc.
The tenderness of Poulenc’s sacred music holds a mirror to Charpentier’s expression of Marian devotion in this uplifting concert that signals spring and rebirth.
Single ticket buyers are able to access the concert for 48 hours from the original broadcast time.
