Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Both Novelli and Marzorati have light yet full-bodied voices, flexible enough to negotiate ornate passages, yet sufficiently poised for long-breathed melodies... Recommended without reservation." -- William Yeoman, www.goldbergweb.com

'Impatience', 'Jealous Mars' and 'Héracliet & Démocrite' are three French Cantatas composed between 1706 and 1714 by Jean-Baptiste Stuck (1680-1755), also known as Batistin. This composer of Tuscan origin spent most of his career working for the Régent and his ambition was to 'unite the taste for Italian music with French texts'. The theme of this record is jealousy, which contrives to somehow disturb the harmonious landscapes of a French garden...
