Irish Chamber Choir of Paris

Vêpres baroques

17th-century organist and composer Jacques Duponchel spent most of his career in the Spanish Netherlands and in Italy. His essentially religious compositions for voice combine the virtuousity of the Italian style with the rigour of Franco-Flemish contrepoint. The beautiful female voices of the Centre Culturel Irlandais’ chamber choir soar in the setting of St Patrick’s chapel for this presentation of Duponchel’s Vêpres baroques, written in 1665.
