Notes & Reviews:

From the first glowing tones of soprano Sandrine Piau, you can tell that you have an album of extraordinary and subtle beauty. The music, dark and sensuous, is a mixture of baroque and gothic magnificence and simplicity. Listening to it is a spiritually refreshing experience. That wonderful Baroque artist, Christophe Rousset plays the organ of the great French Gothic abbey, St. Antoine, with the superb Les Talens Lyriques period instrument ensemble.
