Le Concert Spirituel

 

continued

It has also become a test piece for any period instrument ensemble with aspirations to grandeur. The most enthusiastic and persuasive of Charpentier's French advocates is Hervé Niquet, who, with Le Concert Spirituel, an ensemble of thirteen singers and sixteen instrumentalists, has made a specialty of Charpentier's sacred music. Their many recordings of his works have attracted encomiums from European critics, and their 2001 recording of the Te Deum was warmly praised by Grammophon.

On Thursday, November 4, at St. Francis Church, Niquet and Le Concert Spirituel perform this Te Deum, along with Charpentier's Messe de Monsieur de Mauroy, his longest and most elaborate setting of the Ordinary of the Mass.    (end of article)
