The first concert LEÇONS DE TÉNÈBRES will showcase this unique musical genre typical of 17th-century French Tenebrae services. Literally translated as lessons of darkness, the genre developed during the reign of Louis XIII and is typically sung for three days by candlelight on the eve of Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Holy Saturday. It is a vocal genre with instrumental accompaniment, which combines virtuosity close to air de cour, with its typical twinkle and diminution.
