Henry Du Mont
Pour les Dames religieuses (For the Ladies of Religion)
Pour les vêpres / Messe pour les couvents / Pour les fêtes de l'année

Henri Du Mont first made provision for the performance of a number of his compositions by women's voices in his Cantica Sacra (1652) and thus made it possible for these works to be sung in convents. This recording includes not only the motets intended for these institutions but also one of the Messes Royales in plainsong and several organ pieces from his Meslanges composed for the Dames religieuses qui touchent l'orgue.
This recording is the second in a systematic exploration of the several collections of music by Henry du Mont that were published in Paris. The first recording in this series was devoted to the Cantica Sacra and was released in 2010 to mark the 400th anniversary of the composer's birth.
