GUILDHALL SCHOOL CANTATA PROJECT
JAMES JOHNSTONE director
Les Plaisirs de Versailles
This intriguing programme of French baroque music for voices,
recorders, harp, theorbo and harpsichord contrasts Charpentier's
entertaining eponymous cantata with Couperin's Lamentations
setting for the Tenebrae service.
Handel was well acquainted with the vocal works of Charpentier's teacher, Giacomo Carissimi, and the Italian's influence can be clearly seen in this charming French cantata.
