Review By Penguin Guide,January 2009

Master of the King’s Music in the golden age of Louis XIV, Lully dominated French music for over 30 years, carefully keeping such composers as Charpentier in the background. Though in depth he may not quite match Charpentier, let alone Purcell, he was consistently lively and inventive. This excellent Naxos issue offers three of the larger-scale, multi-movement motets with choir and soloists, set against two of the best-known ‘little’ motets for soloists alone, including the beautiful O dulcissime. First-rate French performances, with no singers individually named.
