L’orateur harmonique, autour des motets de Lully

This 17th century music stresses the equal importance of the score and the sung text, their interconnection. As the scholar Marin Mersenne wrote, the music in that moment becomes a 'harmonious whole', a performance of both vocal and musical significance.

The Irish Chamber Choir of Paris, under the artistic direction of Jean-Charles Léon, presents a rarely heard programme of Lully motets in which the Florentine master displays his command of both music and words.
