Review | Saturday 04 August 2012
William Christie and Les Arts Florissants have been spending a lot of time in the recording studio of late it feels. This new recording seems particularly apt, what with the ensemble being named after a Charpentier opera. This is a rare recording of one of Charpentier’s two Biblical Tragedies, David & Jonathas. The story of two true friends, against all odds and of course with tragic consequences is beautifully performed by this group with their founding Artistic director at the helm, William Christie. A must for any fan of choral music of the highest quality.
