The Duluth-based Arrowhead Chorale opened its 2013-14 season on Friday night with a Christmas concert billed as Pause Français. The program began with the choir in the loft at Gloria Dei Lutheran Church, which is a wonderful place for the choir to be. Music director Stanley Wold began with an uninterrupted performance of the Christmas Midnight Mass (Messe de Minuit pour Noel), composed in 1690 by the very gifted Marc-Antoine Charpentier. The Chorale was joined by string quartet, two flutes, and organ, as well as a series of Renaissance art images projected toward the front of the church.

Though unfamiliar to modern audiences, Charpentier used melodies from several well-known French Christmas carols to convey the text of the Mass. Kyrie was sung by the chorale, then Christe was sung by three men, followed by a return of the chorale for Kyrie. The entirety of the Gloria text was highly rhythmic, coming from the Christmas carol he included. The Credo was more prosaic, even with the darkness of the Crucifixus, another familiar carol tune. The Sanctus was full, and the Agnus Dei was quite melodic, alternating between chorale and trio.
