Review By Gramophone,

"The choir and instrumentalists of Le Concert Spiritual are on their usual lively form .... directed with stylistic assurance by Niquet"

Review By Penguin Guide,January 2009

The Canticum Zachariae dates from 1687, and its lovely six-part Benedictus shows Charpentier in characteristically fluent lyrical and contrapuntal form. The four-part Mass—the first of the composer’s eleven settings—which opens simply, extends to six voices in the Sanctus, with the spirited Hosanna extended to double choir. But it is the short Agnus Dei, serenely beautiful, that haunts the memory.
