Delalande: Tenebrae; Bossuet / Lefilliatre, Dumestre, Et Al
Michel Richard de Lalande, who worked at the court of Versailles, was probably the most influential and most talented composer of sacred music during the early eighteenth century. The works on this recording show a mixture of contemplative simplicity and virtuosity and are undoubtedly amongst the most expressively eloquent works ever written for a female soloist.
