Catalogue Number: 06O020
Label: Brilliant Classics
Description: Bousset was one of only three composers to write cantates spirituelles, which aren't particularly stylistically different from secular cantatas around 1739-40 when his nine works in the genre were published, and he was the only one to set psalms or psalm paraphrases. A richer texture obtains here than with the usual bare group of continuo instruments in this repertoire as these pieces are scored for flute, oboe and violin as well as continuo. No texts. Le Tendre Amour.
