Chandos is delighted to welcome on board the multi-award-winning Ensemble Meridiana. Established as one of Europe’s finest baroque ensembles, it is regularly invited to all the prestigious international early music festivals, on top of their touring activity worldwide.

In this programme of French delights we trace the voyage of Love through baroque France. The three composers presented on this album were active in different milieus of the French world of baroque music. They escort us to the sites of the action: the chamber music of Joseph Bodin de Boismortier takes us to the salons of the city, and his Ballet de Village transports us to the country. The Compositeur de la Chambre du Roi, Jean-Féry Rebel, invites us to the royal court. And finally Michel Corrette completes our story with the joys of earthly love in Le Plaisir des Dames and a wedding feast in the country!

Ensemble Meridiana:
- Dominique Tinguely (recorders, voice flute, baroque bassoon)
- Sarah Humphrys (recorders, baroque oboe+
- Sabine Stoffer (baroque violin)
- Tore Eketorp (viola da gamba, quinton, violone)
- Christian Kjos (harpsichord)
Mirko Arnone (theorbo, baroque guitar, colascione)
