Shortly before Christmas, the Origen Ensemble under the direction of Clau Scherrer sings French music for Christmas. Francis Poulenc performs the «Quatre motets pour le temps de Noël», mysterious, joyful songs that tell of the birth of Jesus and the arrival of the shepherds. Poulenc also wrote the «Messe en Sol Majeur», a magnificent work, profound and warm-hearted. Maurice Duruflé's «Quatre motets sur des thèmes grégoriens» build on the oldest chorale traditions. Compositions by Gion Antoni Derungs and Christoph Schiess flow into the Christmas programme and create references to the Swiss musical landscape. The tower in the white snowy landscape becomes a Christmas illuminated concert hall and tells of the hope for the return of light.
