Inspired by the French royal court’s “Cabinet of Musical Pleasures,” this fun-loving program offers exquisite though rarely heard works from the ancien régime of Versailles and its imitators. Three exciting young singers join the ensemble for two major works by Marc-Antoine Charpentier, including his sublime Magnificat à 3 and his hilarious Petite Pastorale, a satiric look at the age-old idea of a singing contest, plus works by Lully, C. P. E. Bach, and Handel. Featuring tenor Aaron Sheehan and baritone John Buffett in their Ars Lyrica débuts, and tenor Eduardo Tercero.
