Notes and Editorial Reviews
A dramatic account of music that combines grandeur, passion and tedium. Superb blend in the upper voices and clarity of diction entrance. For aficionados this is a significant disc.
-- Berta Joncus, BBC Music Magazine
The large motet 'à la française' is a quite distinctive affair that has nothing in common with the more traditional notion that a composer like Bach, for instance, had of the genre. If a comparison must be made, we will find that the French motet is more like an extended cantata consisting of a succession of choruses and arias accompanied by the orchestra, with the absence of recitative constituting an important difference.
