Lecons de Tenebres
Following their distinguished interpretations by the criticism of the previously little-known "Apothéoses", and "Nations" of François Couperin, Les Ombres deliver a new reading of his sacred heritage. The Lessons of Darkness, or Lamentations published in 1714, testify to Couperin's attachment to the sacred, to text and to vocality. One can recognize in his instrumental music a mastery of rhythms, and supports, just as he would place each note on a given text. It is therefore with delight that we discover this vocal legacy to prosody as studied as natural.
