4.0 out of 5 stars A nice CD 3 Mar 2007
By Teemacs TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
The Charpentier Te Deum is famous for Just One Thing - that fanfare, which is known by everyone who has ever watched Eurovision. However, the rest of the piece is also pleasant listening. The French baroque never produced the masterpieces of Handel in England or Bach in Germany, so the B Minor Mass it ain't, but it's good and with Minowski's typically high energy approach, it fairly bounces along. Both the soloists and the Musiciens du Louvre are good. The Messe de Minuit (for Christmas) is a charming piece based on old French carols.

5.0 out of 5 stars Five stars for Nuit alone! The rest is fantastic, too 4 Mar 2007
By Steven Guy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
As I mentioned in the title, the "Nuit" instrumental interlude is worth the price of this disc, however, this recording is a real winner on every level and no lover of Baroque music should be without it.

Many people, perhaps most people, will recognise the Rondeau from the Te Deum. I think it was used during the World Cup, or was it the Olympics, some years ago. Minkowski's Les Musiciens du Louvre use a bass natural trumpet here, along with the regular clarini, and the affects/effects here are very powerful. The Te Deum is a grand work and full of M-A Charpentier's great creativity and vision. I think he was one of the very greatest Baroque composers - up there with Biber, Purcell, Corelli and Rosenmüller in his own age.

The Midnight Mass is a beautiful work, again one familiar to many because of its associations with Christmas and its use of Christmas carol melodies. The Messe de Minuit is scored for voices, recorders and strings and it offers a perfect contrast to the Te Deum with its trumpets, timpani, oboes, bassoons and strings.

The soloists are Early Music regulars and many will be interested in hearing what Magdalena Kozená was like back in 1997, when this recording was made. In some ways, I think she was better then, before she was coaxed into a solo career by DG/Universal. Maybe they thought she was too beautiful and luxurient looking to be a mere ensemble singer in Baroque sacred music and a part player in French Baroque opera?

This recording sounds very impressive through a big sound system. A "audiophile" CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Joyful and Masterful Liturgical Music 9 May 2009
By M. Ramos - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Marc-Antoine Charpentier (1643-1704) was a French composer who was a contemporary of Louis XIV. Charpentier created liturgical works full of grace and energy, using great imagination for his musical settings. This is very much evident in the selections for this recording, the TE DEUM and the MESSE DE MINUIT. The first one is a joyously triumphant interpretation of the thanksgiving text, using eight soloists, chorus and orchestra, including three trumpets, something unusual for the times. The MESSE DE MINUIT is a more modest work where the composer integrates the melodies of traditional French carols of noels in the setting of the Mass, creating a joyous atmosphere that perfectly evokes the joy of Christmas. It between thesee two works, there is a small instrumental piece called 'Nuit' from another Christmas oratorio that greatly prepare the listener for the Christmas spirit of MESSE DE MINUIT by recreating the peace of the Christmas night. On this recording, this lovely music finds a perfect interpretation in the hands of Marc Minkowsky in collaboration with Les Musiciens du Louvre and some soloists (among them Annick Massis and Magdalena Kozena). There is not a weak link on the performances and the bounce and energy is truly contagious. This is a perfect CD to be used as an introduction to the skill and imagination of a French baroque composer that deserves to be better known today.

I was curious when his name came up, so I decided to try a Charpentier recording. I'm glad I did. It is worth the time to listen, and a welcome addition to my library. Get it for the musicologist in you!
