The text of Jeremy's Lamentations, from the Old Testament, inspired number of big composers, among whom Roland de Lassus, Marc-Antoine Charpentier and François Couperin... These works were sung during the Easter period, and became a musical strong time of the liturgical year in the Baroque period. François Couperin's magnificent Lessons for two sopranos will be punctuated with meditations chosen among most right-hand pages of Bossuet, La Bruyère and Pascal.

"As for the performances, it is rare to hear such absolutely exquisite ensemble playing. All of La Réveuse move as if they were one, with clear intonation, precise ornamentation and rapid passage work, and suitably flexible tempos that outline Telemann's music extremely well. This disc is an example of detail and precision that should serve as a model. Well recommended. "

Bertil van Boer, Fanfare, 25 mars 2015

 

"With playing like this, it deserves it ! "
