Notes & Reviews:

"Martin Gester's performance is uniformly excellent. The Rondo Prelude has a relaxed, almost jazzy quality...Gester's performers offer...care and sincerity. The other two items...confirm that wherever one looks in Charpentier's output, no disappointments await...The real gem...is the psalm 'Notus in Judea Deus' with its exquisitely expressive still centre and the magnificent vividness of the word-setting in its second half--unmissable." **** -Smaczny, BBC

BBC Music Magazine
The buoyant orchestral playing here is a delight, and the solo singers make a fine contribution. But the children's voices on the treble line of La Maetrise de Bretagne lack the necessary project.
