Motets for the House of Guise

Marc-Antoine Charpentier


These works, headed by the Miserere des Jésuites, constitute an unexpected parenthesis in the music of the Grand Siècle. The creative genius, the inwardness and the intense fervour of acomposer surrounded by his faithful company of singers and instrumentalists of the House of Guise speak to us all the more intimately because Charpentier appears here as both copyist (the surviving scores are in his handwriting) and performer – he sang the haute-contre part.
