Anne-Sophie Petit (soprano) and Jérome Brodin (harpsichord)

 

Anne-Sophie Petit and Jérôme Brodin immerse you in the Franco-British atmosphere of the mid-Baroque period. Combining secular and sacred music, they forge links between three brilliant composers from France and Great Britain, Marc-Antoine Charpentier (1643), Henry Purcell (1659-1695), François Couperin (1668-1733) and their contemporaries ( Louis Marchand and John Blow). They reveal what brings them together, but also the personality and the style of each of them.

Laudes franciscaines (Venite a laudare)   

Vocal group Ma non Troppo : Emmanuelle Huteau, singing and dulcian / Elsa Papatanasios, singing / Daniela Maltrain, singing et vielle

 

During the XIIIth century, with Saint Francis of Assisi, a whole repertoire of popular devotion songs began to develop in Italy. Most of the songs are orally transmitted but some have been written and have reached us. These are the very first collections of popular songs of devotion written in vernacular language, related to the Virgin or the saints. The melodies of Mediterranean style are alternately fresh and poignant. Lauda will later become a full-fledged musical form, written for three voices in the XVth century, then for four voices in the first Italian musical impressions of the XVIth century.
