Description
Les Arts Florissants are named after a piece by Baroque composer Marc-Antoine Charpentier, and they acquit themselves beautifully in this enchanting work written for Christmas Eve.

"An especially attractive work, the 'Pastorale sur la Naissance de Notre-Seigneur Jesus-Christ' depicts the story of the shepherds, the angel and the heavenly host, and the visit to the manger in music of astonishing tenderness, directness, sophistication and responsiveness to the sounds of words and the images that they summon—'we cannot doubt,' the ensemble sings firmly, 'but we scarcely dare believe,' it continues in more awe-struck music. Later we hear the power of 'ardent love' as it melts the ice of the soul."—Boston Globe
