Rameau's Grands Motets, works as rare as they are exquisite, reveal a long-neglected view of the legacy of the greatest French composer of the 18th century - along these celestial notes, a talent, a genius, still in its infancy is revealed, which will come into its own in opera! 


Ensemble Marguerite Louise
Gaétan Jarry Conductor

Jean-Philippe RAMEAU (1683-1764)

Recorded from January 13th to January 16th 2020 and from March 28th to March 30th 2021 at the Royal Chapel of the Château de Versailles.

Although celebrated for opera and harpsichord in his fifties, Rameau had formerly been first and foremost a master of sacred music. These works, composed between 1712 and 1721 when he was in his thirties, are marvels of balance, fully bearing the seeds of the splendour that Rameau would later display on the Parisian opera scene. In the French tradition of Lully and Lalande, which places the sacred text at the heart of a sumptuous musical performance, this complete set of Rameau’s Motets is performed with jubilation and grace by the soloists, the choir and the Marguerite Louise Orchestra under the inspired direction of Gaétan Jarry.

Booklet in French, English, German - Duration: 77'41
