Notes and Editorial Reviews

Most of what’s heard here comes from a manuscript with the mouthful of a title Collection of several old Airs composed for Coronations, Weddings and other Solemn events during the reigns of Henry III, Henry IV and Louis XIII, including several Concerts for their royal entertainment, gathered together in an anthology by Philidor the Elder in 1690. The music is arranged on the disc by periods and occasions: items from the Dauphin’s infancy; pieces for his coronation on October 17, 1610; music for his November 28, 1615, marriage; a 1627 concert for the King by the 24 Violins and the 12 Great Oboes; and selections from the above-mentioned miscellany of Royal Music from 1634 to 1650. The material covers multiple styles; pieces such as Read more the muzette Ma Mignone and the two short pieces Branle en faubourdon and Gaillarde en suitte are practically folk music, while Pavane pour les hautbois fait au Sacre du Roy is Renaissance in flavor, and the Italian sarabande Al’impero d’amore is quintessentially Baroque. Similarly, the instrumentation varies considerably. Le Concert des Nations is split into four groups of musicians that are mixed and matched: Ensemble of the Cornets and Grand Oboes (which also includes sackbuts, bassoons, musette [bagpipe], and flute); Ensemble of the 24 Violins (including concertino); Ensemble of the Grand Oboes (including trumpets, flutes, and bassoons); and the Bass Continuos and Percussions (harpsichord, organ, guitar, theorbo, and drums). Familiar names such as Marcel Ponseele, Marc Hantaï, and Rolf Lislevand are among those delivering these lilting performances. While a general upbeat perkiness dominates, the frequent changes of timbre and the gradual evolution of the styles prevent a sense of sameness from taking over this delightful program."
