Halloween Weekend Office of the Dead Concerts
- Join San Francisco Renaissance Voices (Todd Jolly, Music Director) for their sixth annual Halloween Weekend Office of the Dead Concerts. This year's concerts feature the "Messe des morts" of Jean Gilles (1668-1705). Although rarely performed today the requiem written by Jean Gilles was one of the most performed compositions of the 18th century. Posthumously, it was enormously successful, often being performed for the funerals of the great and famous, including composer Jean-Philippe Rameau, the king of Poland, and King Louis XV to name but three.
