À propos

Alongside his ensemble Correspondances, Sébastien Daucé passionately revives the music of the 17th century. Adamant about giving a new life to forgotten composers, he also defends masterpieces of more established repertoire. The Midnight Christmas Mass can be classified in this latter category, and is the reason for Marc-Antoine Charpentier’s (1643-1704) worldwide success. A tasteful mix of scholarly and popular tradition, of simple melodies and of complex arrangements, gives a universal taste to this Christmas music and makes it accessible to all.
