Description
The spiritual cantata was a form imported from Italy into 17th-century France after the death of Jean-Baptiste Lully. This striking program presents three dramatic examples: Judith, The Fall of Solomon, and Le Passage de la Mer Rouge ("The Crossing of the Red Sea") by Elisabeth Jacquet de la Guerre, Sébastien de Brossard, and René Drouart de Bousset.

"This disc deserves nothing but praise. First of all, we get acquainted here with a little-known genre ... nothing of De Bousset has ever been recorded before. Also highly commendable is the fact that the pronunciation of the French texts is strictly historical. Luanda Siqueira has a beautiful voice, and sings with great understanding and much expression. She also deals admirably with the dramatic elements of De Bousset's cantata. The instrumentalists give fine performances of the instrumental parts of the cantatas and trio sonatas."—Musica Dei Donum

"The musicians underline the effects with beautiful colors, offering a brilliant interpretation of the music of Elisabeth Jacquet de la Guerre. From the glorious oboe to the deep basse de violon, to the violin that excites the anger of the Pharoah, to the harpsichord that surprises us with joy, all participate in the musical mise-en-scène. Light tempos and the spicy timbre of soprano Luanda Siqueira reveal theatrical subtlety. Music becomes a sweet refuge, a companion to symbolize joy."—Muse Baroque
