St. Augustine wrote: "If we sing together, we sing for the heart". What a nice way to introduce the Petits Chanteurs du Mont-Royal and their music director Gilbert Patenaude. On this album, they perform the most beautiful works of the sacred music repertoire, among them: Franck's Panis angelicus, Busto's Ave Maria and oeuvres by Saint-Saëns, Verdi and Brahms. An album which will bring inner peace, a celestial peace.

For 20 years (from 1663 to 1683) Henry Du Mont directed the music of the Sun King’s chapel. For the daily Mass there he built up a new repertory consisting of motets for full chorus and more intimate pieces for solo voices. The former aimed to transpose to the context of ‘ordinary’ the format of the large-scale works conceived for extraordinary ceremonies. Sébastien Daucé presents an innovative approach to these grands motets, that at once links specific musical features with historical data, for each of which he adopts a specific instrumental scoring.

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.

The gorgeous early music releases of France's Alpha label, each illustrated with a relevant painting along with discussion of both the music and the artwork, offer a splendid introduction to the culture of the ancien régime. The discussions get down to the kind of depth that academics traffic in, yet the performances are by and large sensuous ones entrusted to some of France's best historical-instrument ensembles.

Cultivated at the height of the French baroque, Henry Du Mont's Grands Motets were written for the court of Louis XIV and published posthumously in 1684. Alongside Lully, Du Mont is credited as the creator of the form - an opulent style of church composition for soloists and choir. On O Mysterium, Sebastien Dauce leads the Ensemble Correspondances in a program of Du Mont 's Motets & Elevations pour la Chapelle de Louis XIV.

Henry du Mont was only French by adoption, originally coming from Liège. He was a prolific mid-17th century composer and wrote over three hundred compositions, mainly religious. His first collection of motets was published in 1652. His favourite vocal combination was the duo and half of the pieces in this collection are these. He exploits other combinations too, such as a top line, bass and upper violin part.

Henri Dumont is an important figure in the French Baroque scene in that he was one of the pioneers in the development of the "grands motets" that saw such fruit in the works of Lully, Delaland, Campra, Charpentier, Rameau and others. From what I've heard of his music, it tends to be a bit more subdued and sombre that a lot of the festive and almost manic works from some of the others mentioned. This disc has four motets, one of which; Dialogus de anima, has been recorded before. I have the versions by Herreweghe and Rousset.

With a title inspired by Woody Allen’s ‘Midnight in Paris’ (the opening scenes of which were filmed on the church steps), ‘Midnight at St Etienne du Mont’ explores the music of Duruflé, who was Titular Organist there from 1929 until his death in 1986. As well as Durufulé’s own Suite Op. 5, at the centre of the programme is the premiere recording of David Briggs’ Le Tombeau de Duruflé – a brilliant work built on plainsong themes that Duruflé so loved himself.

Before you play the first track of this disc, make sure you're in quiet surroundings and ready to listen closely. You'll hear a pure yet sensuous soprano voice slip gently out of the silence and sing a melody that manages to be haunting and virtuosic at the same time–only to be followed by a similar voice doing the same thing. The two voices coil around each other (with some gleaming suspensions) for a full minute before instruments join them. And that's just the beginning of this marvelous disc of motets by François Couperin, a composer better known for his keyboard and chamber music. Most of these pieces were written to accompany the Elevation of the Host (the most solemn moment of the Roman Catholic liturgy), so you won't hear much exuberance.
