Sophie Karthäuser (soprano), Ensemble Correspondances, Sébastien Daucé

Composed by: de Lalande: Leçons de Ténèbres

When Michel-Richard de Lalande died, his fame was at its height. Audiences flocked to hear his motets, notably the Leçons de Ténèbres and the Miserere for solo voice, written for the offices of Holy Week. Many composers had already produced settings of these texts in the France of the Sun King, making the Office of Tenebrae a genuine social event. This recording features solo soprano Sophie Karthäuser accompanied by Sébastien Daucé and his Ensemble Correspondances.
