Description: Hardouin spent his entire 52-year career as director of music at Rheims Cathedral. The six a cappella masses in this two-disc series were published in 1772 but when they were written is unknown; many others of their type were composed also. They begin in stile antico polyphony and generally moderate into more up-to-date homophony; each has its own personality quite different from each other. St Martin's Chamber Choir; Timothy J. Kreuger.
