Splendors of Sacred Music of Louis XIV - music of Lebegue, Charpentier, Couperin, de Lalande, Marchand /

Notes & Reviews:

The famous 'pomp' of Versailles, as illustrated by the glorious Te Deum setting by Marc-Antoine Charpentier heard on this recording, involving soloists, a large chorus and an orchestra with trumpets and timpani, co-existed with exceptionally intimate works, such as Lalande's Miserere or the petits motets composed by Du Mont, which illustrate the most personal aspect of French sacred music of the Baroque era. Finally, organ music played a part in religious ceremonies throughout the kingdom, in the cathedrals of the provinces and in the Royal Chapel. Francois Couperin and Louis Marchand were among the most famous of the royal organists.
