‘Charpentier Te Deum - a nocte temporis & Reinoud Van Mechelen’

12 Mar.'22
- 20:00

Besides being a beloved hymn in honour of God, the Te Deum was a musical tribute to the king under the French monarchy. At the beginning of the season, Vox Luminis and the Freiburger Baroque Orchestra will perform de Lalande’s version. During this concert, a nocte temporis will present that of Charpentier. This festive score is perhaps the best known version of the Te Deum, if only because of its cheerful prélude, with its flashing trumpets and rhythmic timpani, which you probably already know as the tune for the Eurovision Song Contest. A nocte temporis will demonstrate the piece's overall mastery, linking it to another masterpiece: Campra's death mass. Despite its melancholic nature, Campra allows hope to prevail through the darkness. ​​​​​​​
