5.0 out of 5 stars A real ensemble performance, 2 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Trois Leçons de Ténèbres (Audio CD)
The Leçons des tenèbres are extraordinary works, some of the most expressive and beautiful music ever produced by the French school of the time. No surprise that there are so many recordings, including several classics. So this new disc is not an an outright winner, but up there at the very top. Two of the very best singers in this repertory, at the top of their form, with a superbly judged and played accompaniment by a small group of players. This very strong sense of an ensemble performance is a major reason to rate this so highly, alongside the lovely balance achieved by the sound engineer. The smaller items are also elegantly and expressively played, and sustain the reflective mood. In performances like these this music has an emotional impact one does not always associate with the French baroque - I find these pieces quite mesmerising, and would recommend this disc enthusiastically to anyone.
