Notes & Reviews:

"William Christie and Les Arts Florissants have been champions of Charpentier for several years and continue their recorded survey of the composer with delightful vocal chamber works...I can't offer enough praise for this music or the performers. There is not a routine bar and certainly none of the sterility that marks many early music performances. If you normally resist early music (or its scholarly performances), give this a try." -Lovelace, ARG
