Excerpt:Tunc acceptabis sacrificium
‘Petits Motets’ for the Chapelle du Roy.
These ‘petites’ compositions of sacred music for several soloists and a small instrumental ensemble are in a certain sense the pendants to the grands motets of Versailles: Lully's successor excelled in both forms. At the close of the Grand Siècle, Delalande asserted himself as one of the truly great figures in French Baroque music.
This CD was released for the first time in 1992.
