Description: Particularly fine examples of the French cantata at the height of its popularity, Courbois (1710) particularly apt at colorful tone-painting in his accompaniments (and with an obbligato trumpet in his last aria!), Clérambault (1713) known for the intense lament in his central aria and Campra (1728) striking for its representation of fragmented psychological states of mind, reflected in the interaction between protagonist and instruments. French-English texts. Hugo Oliveira (bass), Ludovice Ensemble.
