TÉNÈBRES DU PREMIER JOUR

François Couperin

Les demoiselles de Saint-Cyr - Emmanuel Mandrin

Emmanuel Mandrin, orgue et direction

Couperin le Grand's Leçons de Ténèbres - French baroque spiritual music at its most sumptuous and masterly - illumined through Michel Lambert's Miserere (première recording) and the Responsories of Marc-Antoine Charpentier. A performance close to what might have been heard in the early 18th century during a Holy Week promenade in a "house of religion".

France Musique.
