Performers Composers

Notes & Reviews:

Recorded in the beautiful church of Notre Dame, Rozay-en-Brie, by Concerto delle Donne, this CD celebrates 300 years of Marc-Atoine Charpentier, whose works range from simple settings of hymns composed for unaccompanied solo voice to works of great complexity and virtuosity for soloists, double choir and double orchestra. Here, the focus is on the sacred works that Charpentier composed for two and three solo women's voices.
