Product Notes

Charpentier: Messe à 4 choeurs et 4 orchestres / Boyvin: Pièces pour orgue Composer - Jacques Boyvin Philippe Cantor, John Elwes, Charles Brett, Isabelle Poulenard, Agnes Mellon, Odile Bailleux, Jean-Claude Malgoire Chorus - Chœur Régional Nord-Pas-de-Calais & Gabrieli Ensemble - Ensemble Vocal Jean Bridier & Françoise Herr A contemporary of Lully and Lalande, Marc-Antoine Charpentier (1643-1704) was something of an outsider to the French court of Louis XIV, which helps to explain his comparative obscurity. A period of study in Rome doubtless gave Charpentier exposure to the polychoral style long-established from the time of Gabrieli, and this recording presents the triple-choir Salve Regina alongside the opulent Messe à quatre chœurs - written for four separate choirs, with a large continuo team of four organs, four theorbos, bass viol and great bass viol! The possibilities opened up by such a wealth of musicians engender music which seems as close to the proverbial "choir of the angels of heaven" as could be desired.
