St. Paul's Episcopal Church
Missa Assumpta est Maria, H 11 Antoine
Charpentier’s final mass setting, Missa Assumpta est Maria, was written at the end of his life when he was Master of Music at the Sainte-Chapelle, King Louis XIV’s royal chapel in Paris. We hear Charpentier at his best and most refined in this work, with tonal language and expressive rhetoric that deliver everything performers admire most about the French Baroque style. It’s the most superb music you’ve never heard!
