Marc-Antoine Charpentier (1643/44-1704)
Méditations pour le Carême

Passionate advocates of French music, Les Surprises tackle its intimate and spiritual side in a repertoire for male voices and continuo. This line-up was much appreciated at the time for its intimate colours, which could go from a dark to a radiant and powerful hue. Today, the ensemble interprets Méditations pour le Carême (Meditations for Lent) by Marc-Antoine Charpentier. These little masterpieces transport us to a time when theatricality, sensuality and sacrality were mingled and merged.
