This is the approved revision of this page, as well as being the most recent.

Folger Consort performed Paris: Music from the City of Light on January 11 and 12, 2013 at the Washington National Cathedral.

Under a succession of illustrious masters of music, the singers and instrumentalists of Louis XIV’s Chapelle Royale on the outskirts of Paris performed the splendid music of Lully and Charpentier. The Consort reveled in these grand ceremonial pieces and sublime motets for choir, keyboard, and orchestra inside Washington’s own great cathedra with period strings, organ, and Washington National Cathedral’s chamber vocal ensemble, Cathedra.
