Lully: Petits Motets
Enchanting sacred songs from the French early baroque period

(5 out of 5 stars)
"Lully wasn't a French composer, but he became so closely associated with the Sun King Louis XIV that he virtually came to be associated with French early music.
William Christie is a French baroque specialist in works by Lully, Rameau, and others. This Petit Motet is his more recent production.
These small motets are sacred in nature sung in small ensembles. THe performance here is serene and offers a harmonious atmosphere so sadly lacking in later works.
I wonder why "Chant" could reach a star-status sales level while beautiful works like these 'Petit Motets' did not receive one single review over the past two years?"
