Product description

The harmonia mundi label, once well known for specializing in the French Baroque repertoire, makes a welcome and triumphant return to this treasure trove of musical delights. For their first release on harmonia mundi, Sébastien Daucé and the Ensemble Correspondances present a sumptuous interpretation of the six-voice motets composed by Marc-Antoine Charpentier for the House of Guise. These works, which include the Litanies de la Vierge and the Miserere, are masterworks that exemplify Charpentier's influence on the music of the Grand Siècle. The creative genius and intense fervor of this deeply spiritual music display the blend of French and Italian flavors that were his hallmark.


C’est leur première collaboration pour harmonia mundi France : Sébastien Daucé et ses musiciens nous proposent une interprétation somptueuse des motets à six parties composés par Marc-Antoine Charpentier pour la maison de Guise. Miserere en tête, ces œuvres constituent une parenthèse inattendue dans la musique du Grand Siècle. Le génie créatif, l’intériorité et l’intense ferveur d’un compositeur entouré de sa troupe fidèle de chanteurs et musiciens nous paraissent d’autant plus familiers que Charpentier s’y avère copiste (les partitions qui nous sont parvenues sont de sa main) et interprète – il tenait la partie de haute-contre.
