Notes & Reviews:

"American-French conductor William Christie (call him Buffalo Bill) and his ensemble Les Arts Florissants give the music appropriate sweep. Part of Charpentier's genius lies in the qualities of his contrasting sections for soloists and groups of solo singers: he does not simply alternate choruses and airs but balances pomp and sensuality. The full range of his writing comes to the fore in the rarely heard Missa Assumpta est Maria, H. 11, as sensitive a setting of the Catholic mass text (plus a concluding prayer for the king's health) as has ever been composed... Harmonia Mundi's 1989 sound has held up well, and the bottom line is that it just doesn't get any better than this." -All Music Guide
