Notes & Reviews:

In France, during the reign of Louis XIV, the religious service known as Tenebrae was one of the most distinctive ceremonies in the liturgical year. Marc-Antoine Charpentier composed Tenebrae settings throughout his career, 31 lessons in all. The three presented here, written for the Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday of Holy Week, are scored for a solo bass voice, accompanied by an orchestra composed of recorders, oboes, strings, bassoon, and organ. After the success of Vivaldi's Concerti per il flauto traversier (Gramophone Editor's Choice), flautist and conductor Alexis Kossenko presents a new vision of this highly dramatic work.

Gramophone Magazine, November 2012
Here's ample proof, if it were needed, of Charpentier's rank as the finest Baroque church music composer of his generation.
