Notes and Editorial Reviews

The circulation of artists and sovereigns between France and England in the 17th century resulted in the establishment of highly original genres in England. The first recitatives, large-scale airs from masques and dramatic 'scenes' provided fertile ground for experimentation and prepared the way for the birth of semi-opera. Sébastien Daucé explores this English vocal art in a program tailor-made Lucile Richardot, one of today's most fascinating voices. In the exquisite setting provided by Ensemble Correspondances, subtly blends music, love, night and melancholy.

-----

REVIEW:

Superlative performances from Ensemble Correspondances with lithe, agile voices, especially the higher voices,
Read more male and female, complemented by Lucile Richardot. Her range is impressive, enhancing and integrating the other voices.
