Piffaro at St. Mark's Episcopal
December 20, 2008, 8:00 PM

In many rural cathedrals of 16th century France, a midnight mass on Christmas eve was a joyous celebration filled with music, dance and theater. Parishioners heard not only sacred chant and polyphony, but also the rustic texts and tunes of French Noëls

A 16th century manuscript of these old texts, housed in the Rare Book Collection of the Free Library of Philadelphia, will be our source for these Noëls, and the Missa Voulant honneur by Claudin de Sermisy, based on a French chanson, will provide the framework of the program. The manscript’s illustrations of dancing peasants, musicians playing shawms, recorders, hurdy-gurdy and the like, even featuring a bagpipe playing pig and a dancing dog, will also play an important role.

Piffaro members, together with guest artists soprano Laura Heimes and tenor Philip Anderson, will be joined by actors Mark Jaster and Sabrina Mandell, who will help bring the characters from this manuscript alive.
