Notes and Editorial Reviews

Here is genuine 'sacred theatre', combining dramatic gestures and intimate expression in a musical discourse whose sincerity cannot fail to move the listener. Jean Gilles certainly deserved an opportunity for the full range of his output to be rediscovered. Now his time has come!

 Really Excellent Performances!! January 19, 2013 By Clifford H C. (Thompson, MB) See All My Reviews "Gilles - Grands Et Petits Motets - Les Festes D'orphee – Gilles is one of those composers only known for one piece of music ‘’Missa De Morts’’ to the modern world. These pieces show a different side of Jean Gilles. These pieces are recorded for the first time. The Grand Motets are a wonderful French invention. These were performed as concert pieces in Paris and they gained remarkable prestige after Jean Gilles’s death. The Motets are very well performed and highly entertaining. The one bad note is the libretto is only in Latin and French. The notes are in English." Report Abuse
