Notes & Reviews:

When Michel-Richard de Lalande died, his fame was at its height. Audiences flocked to hear his motets, notably the Leçons de Ténèbres and the Miserere for solo voice, written for the offices of Holy Week. Many composers had already produced settings of these texts in the France of the Sun King, making the Office of Tenebrae a genuine social event. This recording features solo soprano Sophie Karthäuser accompanied by Sébastien Daucé and his Ensemble Correspondances.

Gramophone Magazine, June 2015
Karthauser's plangent singing covers a broad range of dynamic expression without ever obscuring a refined emotional essence, and tasteful embellishments always serve the meaning of the Lamentation texts.

American Record Guide, July/August 2015
On the earlier recordings, both Lefilliatre and Desrochers have very light, clear voices. In contrast, KarthSuser has a richer tone and she sounds comfortable even in her upper tessitura. Added to this, she has a very flexible voice and easily handles the baroque intricacies of French vocal ornamentation. The accompaniments are always very supportive and inventive. In the 1730 publication Delalande included a few short passages for solo organ, and in his earlier manuscript version Brossard arranged these for violin. On this new release, they are transposed down an octave and played on a viola da gamba, and apparently the performers have added new obbligatos to some of the verses. As a performance, KarthSuser and the members of Ensemble Correspondances have my highest recommendation.
