Description: New to the catalogues, Bourgeois was first to introduce arioso into the French cantata and these works, from 1708 and 1715, are remarkably tender and melancholy, making much use of minor keys in contrast to the brilliant style of singing then fashionable. French-English texts. Isabelle Desrochers (soprano), Thibaut Lenaerts (tenor), Ensemble Ausonia.
