Baroque Music - "Stella Orientalis - La Nativité à la Renaissance - Ensemble Céladon"
Tuesday 5 December 2023, at 7 pm, Chapelle de la Miséricorde
The glorious story of Christ's birth was a fertile source of inspiration for Renaissanc musicians. Stella Orientalis depicts a very European interpretation of the Nativity and Epiphany, with a multilingual tour of 16th century Christmas carols. On this journey across Europe, we meet numerous composers (Praetorius, Ortiz, Del Encina) with rather different approaches to the same subject: Christmas Eve and all its mystery and wonder, the adoration of the magi and the shepherds.
