Notes & Reviews:

When publishing his Ten Psalms of David in 1564, Claude Le Jeune was still a young musician in his thirties; we know his work from this time solely through a few chansons included in two collective anthologies. This first personal volume clearly identifies him as a Huguenot composer. The four-part texture with frequent homorhythmic passages and the free alternation of long and short syllables clearly belong to the world of protestant psalmody. Yet in numerous passages, the richness of the rhythmic palette and the abundance of polyphony originate from within this framework: the rhythmic values are chosen to illustrate both words and ideas. Although a youthful work, the depth and sincerity of construction of the Ten Psalms are as touching as the greatness of their creator’s vision is impressive. Their employment of modes and rhythm clearly announce certain essential features that would become the hallmark of his mature masterpieces.
