Couperin’s Trois Leçons de Ténèbres are amongst the small amount of the composer’s sacred music that was published during his lifetime. They are intensely personal, depicting the prophet Jeremiah’s bitter anguish in settings that are quite unique. Also included here are Couperin’s joyful motets Laetentur caeli and Venite, exsultemus Domino, and a remarkable Magnificat.
Countertenors James Bowman and Michael Chance are celebrated not only as great soloists but also as matchless duettists.
‘I enthusiastically urge you to obtain this recording … an outstanding recording by any standards, all four artists contributing to a truly memorable experience’ - CD Review
