A POLYCHORAL CHRISTMAS, featuring The Unsung Collective.
About this Event

Join us this holiday for the polychoral music of Marc Antoine Charpentier including his Mass for Four Choirs and Te Deum. We are also happy to collaborate with The Unsung Collective (https://www.theunsungcollective.org/), directed by Tyrone Clinton, in this concert-plus performance. Through sound and light choreography, we will bring this magnificent music back to life inside the walls of our own great Brooklyn Co-Cathedral.

St. Mark’s Cathedral in Venice saw the birth of fantastic new repertoire in the early 1600s. Multiple choirs would be positioned at different locations throughout the cathedral and involve the congregation in one of the most magnificent sounds ever created. People traveled from all across the globe to hear this larger-than-life music reverberating within the walls of St. Marks. One of those travelers was Marc Antoine Charpentier. Impressed by this fantastic sound, the young Charpentier became a pupil of the Venetian masters. Adopting their craft, he translated this tradition into the French repertoire.
