Product Description

Product Description

Each year from 1684 to 1686, Marc-Antoine Charpentier offered a Christmas pastorale to his patron, Marie de Lorraine. After the death of the boy Louis-Joseph, the last male heir of the line, the figure of the Christ-Child occupied a central place in the devotions of the Guise family. The pastorales and antiphons written in this context and recorded here are at the intersection of the sacred and secular genres, of the popular and the learned. They evoke the mystery of birth with a profoundly moving blend of naïveté and gravity.

Review

9/10 'For admirers of the work of Marc-Antoine Charpentier (1643-1704) this release is a true Christmas gift. The music is Charpentier at his best, the performances by period ensemble Ensemble Correspodances, both vocally and instrumentally are outstanding, the audio quality equally good, and the CD booklet notes illuminating … for students of French baroque this is an essential purchase' --Steven Whitehead - Cross Rhythms, 25th November 2016

SUNDAY TIMES ALBUM OF THE WEEK 'The pastoral may be an unusual vehicle for the Christmas story (though it forms a significant part of Handel s Messiah), but it suits the composer s intimate vein to perfection. Daucé s Ensemble Correspondances boasts immaculately stylish soloists in the soprano Caroline Dangin-Bardot, the high tenor Stephen Collardelle and the baritone Etienne Bazola, who blend easily in ensembles. This is state-of-the-art Charpentier, following traditions established by William Christie s Les Arts Florissants. The 'O' Antiphons for Advent short, intense consort pieces proclaiming the coming of Christ make an ideal coupling for those who fancy celebrating 'Noël' in 2016.' --Hugh Canning - The Sunday Times, 18th December 2016

'performed with colour and care, transparently recorded as well … definitely one of my favourite new Christmas recordings this year.' --Andrew McGregor BBC Radio 3 Record Review, 24th December 2016
