Motets for the royal chapel
- Apple Music
Dumont’s work is remarkable in the union he managed to achieve between tradition and novelty, retaining the best of what had come down to him from the great polyphonic tradition of the Chapelle Royale. On the other hand, even if he was not the first one to write a recitative motet with basso continuo, he did invest the genre, newly arrived in France, with an expressive quality which made him a precursor. (Philippe Beaussant)
