6:45 pm – 7:45 pm, Saint Thomas Church
In preparation for Easter and reflection of Passiontide, Holy Monday brings a chamber performance of François Couperin’s Leçons de ténèbres, an intimate and delicate setting of Jeremiah’s Lamentation texts for two sopranos, viola-da-gamba and continuo.

6:45 pm – 7:45 pm, Saint Thomas Church
On April 7th, we will hear Marcel Dupré’s vivid and dramatic tone poem based on the Fourteen Stations of the Cross, Le Chemin de la Croix, Op. 29. In between each movement of this poème symphonique will be read the English translations of intense poetic responses to the Stations by Paul Claudel (1868-1955), one who experienced a sudden religious conversion at the age of eighteen while listening to the choir sing Vespers in the cathedral of Notre Dame de Paris. Although a poet, Claudel’s professional life included spells as French vice-consul here in New York and as the French ambassador to Washington, D.C. (1928–1933).

7:30 pm – 10:00 pm, Saint Thomas Church
Presented as part of their Sesquicentennial Tour, Keble College Choir is one of Oxford’s leading mixed-voice ensembles.

Highlights from the past year include the release of a new recording of the music of the ‘English Handel’ William Hayes with the Oxford-based period instrument ensemble Instruments of Time & Truth, and a new association with The Academy of Ancient Music with a recording of the music of Francisco Valls.
