Grands motets : Dies Irae, Miserere

La Chapelle Royale, Philippe Herreweghe
    • Apple Music

    The large motet 'à la française' is a quite distinctive affair that has nothing in common with the more traditional notion that a composer like Bach, for instance, had of the genre. If a comparison must be made, we will find that the French motet is more like an extended cantata consisting of a succession of choruses and arias accompanied by the orchestra, with the absence of recitative constituting an important difference.
    This title was released for the first time in 1986.
