Sébastien de Brossard: Grandes Motets

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - James Manheim
This is a reissue of a 1997 disc, rereleased and apparently remastered by the Laborie label; it's both musically immensely appealing and sonically quite spectacular, the setting of the Eglise Notre-Dame du Bon Secours in Paris being nothing short of ideal for these Baroque grands motets for soloists, chorus, and orchestra. You won't learn much from the booklet notes, which are in weak white French or tiny blue English and Spanish print on black background. The latter would be a capital offense in many countries, but fortunately this disc is from France, where difficulty of any kind in literary discourse is prized as a kind of national virtue. The recording unites a ...

All Music Guide - James Manheim
This is a reissue of a 1997 disc, rereleased and apparently remastered by the Laborie label; it's both musically immensely appealing and sonically quite spectacular, the setting of the Eglise Notre-Dame du Bon Secours in Paris being nothing short of ideal for these Baroque grands motets for soloists, chorus, and orchestra. You won't learn much from the booklet notes, which are in weak white French or tiny blue English and Spanish print on black background. The latter would be a capital offense in many countries, but fortunately this disc is from France, where difficulty of any kind in literary discourse is prized as a kind of national virtue. The recording unites a diverse set of top-flight talents from that country. The angelic sounds of the chamber choir Accentus, whose repertoire runs forward to the early modern period, prove beautifully suited to the large-scale French Baroque medium, and the few large-scale polyphonic movements in these motets are rendered with impressive precision. Conductor Christophe Coin and the Ensemble Baroque de Limoges deliver very smooth support. But it is the movements built around solos that are most distinctive. Brossard was better known as a pioneer of what would now be called musicology than as a composer, a discipline in which he was mostly self-taught. He was apparently acquainted with a large variety of music from around the continent, and the compositions here have something of a hodgepodge aspect that may have dismayed the academic gatekeepers whose edition-making shaped the first generations of Baroque music performance, but that is actually a lot of fun. The architecture of his music does not match Charpentier's, but Brossard makes up for that in variety. He is fond of deploying colorful, splashy solos over stolid, learned choral accompaniments, and the group of soloists here responds to this aspect with big, somewhat lusty singing. In all, this is an ideal presentation of music by a little-known composer, a fine choice for those interested in the French Baroque.
