This last concert of sacred music will be the occasion to listen "live" the Te Deum of Charpentier which, thanks to the Eurovision since 1953, now resonates like a "hit" to our ears.
From its first notes, this work plunges the imagination of each one at the time of the festivities and the glittering celebrations of the glorious Versailles of Louis XIV.
The Gloria of the one who passed to history like "he lends rosso" (the red priest) alias Antonio Vivaldi, was rediscovered in 1939.
Probably composed between 1714 and 1716, the Gloria is written for two sopranos, a contralto, a mixed choir with four voices and a string orchestra with continuo to which punctually a trumpet and an oboe.
