The favorite holiday tradition continues — for the sixth year — with the splendid Messe de Minuit pour Noël by French baroque composer Marc-Antoine Charpentier, illuminated with the popular carols on which it is based.
Composed in the 1690s, its melodies are beloved French carols, which Charpentier weaves throughout the different movements. The result is a joyful, tuneful celebration!
Quire Cleveland performs the mass music with an outstanding ensemble of local baroque instrumentalists and frames it with a cappella arrangements of all of the carols, specially arranged by Artistic Director, Ross W. Duffin.

Quire Cleveland brings you glorious music by the greatest composers of the Renaissance: Josquin Desprez (“The Prince of Music”), Guillaume DuFay, Roland de Lassus, and many more!
These composers from Flanders dominated music in the same way that Italians dominated the visual arts. Giants like Leonardo, Michelangelo, Brunelleschi, and Tintoretto had their counterparts in DuFay, Josquin, Willært, and Lassus, and a remarkable number of other sublimely talented composers. They were trained in the choir schools of the North, and often drawn to the brilliant courts of Renaissance Italy. Come hear the flower of their music: exquisite motets of contrapuntal mastery, astonishing variety, and sonorous splendor! Read more (2) »
