The Ebor Singers perform sacred music from seventeenth-century France, from Du Caurroy to Charpentier.
  • Details

    Music on this disc traces the evolution of sacred music over the seventeenth century, from the contrapuntal motets of Du Caurroy (1609), the first evidence of the new Italian style in France (Bouzignac, Boesset, Du Mont) to the most gifted but most misunderstood composer of his generation, Marc-Antoine Chatpentier. The CD also focuses on a group of pieces written by Bouzignac with both musical and historical significance, that celebrates the Siege of La Rochelle, a decisive victory of Louis XIII over the rebel Protestants.
