CD Reviews

Settings of Lamentations by a baroque master
07/20/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Given the number of recordings of Charpentier's tenebres available one might think that they had been done to death. Wrong. In fact Charpentier wrote so many beautiful settings of these latin texts that the recordings by Jacobs (3CDs), Lesne (3CDs), Gester (1CD) and now Niquet (1CD) hardly contain any overlaps at all. None of the three lecons de tenebres recorded here have ever been re-recorded elsewhere. A listing of recordings (by Hitchcock numbers) is as follows:92 3ème leçon du Mercredi Gester
93 3ème leçon du Jeudi Gester
96 1ère leçon du Mercredi Jacobs
95 3ème leçon du Vendredi Lesne
95 3ème leçon du Vendredi Gester
97 2ème leçon du Mercredi Jacobs
98 3ème leçon du Mercredi Jacobs
102 1ère leçon du Jeudi Jacobs
103 2ème leçon du Jeudi Jacobs
104 3ème leçon du Jeudi Jacobs
105 1ère leçon du Venredi Jacobs

144 Omnes amici mei LesneJacobs on this disc does not include antiphons or other liturgical pieces (unlike Gester and Lesne), nor does his own alto voice feel as assured as Lesne's, nevertheless this is a lovely serene and sombre recording of these works and a good introduction to the whole genre. Other composers of tenebres include Sermisy, Lambert, and perhaps most famously Delalande."
