Centre de musique baroque de Versailles / Olivier Schneebeli

The Grand Siècle in France was a period exceptionally favourable to the renewal of the forms of sacred music and their sources of inspiration. Marc-Antoine Charpentier (1643-1704) is undoubtedly the master of this process. His 'Histoires sacrées', stimulated by his years of training in Rome, represent a vast ‘sacred theatre’, deploying unprecedented vocal and instrumental invention to portray the major episodes of the Old and New Testaments with special emphasis on their dramatic and psychological mainsprings.

From Judith freeing the people of Israel from the yoke of Holofernes, to the Massacre of the Innocents with its depiction of the countless cruel deeds of Herod, here is an admirable synthesis of Italian chiaroscuro and the radiant grace of the French Baroque.
