ATLANTA BAROQUE ORCHESTRA
Julie Andrijeski, Artistic Director
The Concert Spirituel
The Concert Spirituel provided a means in Paris to produce entertainments during the Lenten season when theatrical events were forbidden. Begun on March 18, 1725, these events were attended by the lower aristocracy, foreigners, and other people of means. The ABO, joined by the Cathedral Schola, recreates one such program with an exquisite grand motet by Delalande and an abundance of instrumental music by Leclair, Dauvergne, and the ever popular Corelli.
