Every year, we try to make the Spires Advent concert a bit different. This time, we feature an unusual French Christmas Mass by Marc-Antoine Charpentier, written in 1694. What is unusual, apart from the fact that Charpentier is little performed these days in either the UK or France, is that Charpentier used the tunes of ten Christmas Noels well-known in their day – what we would call carols – as the basis of his Midnight Mass. So the cheerful music is full of dance and joy.
In the second half, we sing Christmas music spreading over five centuries, including Coventry’s very own contribution to Christmas music, the Coventry Carol.
