Western religious music from different centuries.
A mass and two grand motets from the French baroque composer André Campra.
This episode is dedicated to André Campra, who was ‘maître de musique’ to the Notre Dame in Paris from 1694 until 1700. During the following twenty years, he focussed on composing operas. From 1720 onwards, he went back to composing religious music. In this programme, we will hear a mass and two grand motets, performed by Le Concert Spirituel and is conducted by Hervé Niquet.
