Marc-Antoine Charpentier: Le Reniement De Saint Pierre H 424 By Les Arts Florissants

14 min
Marc-Antoine Charpentier: Le Reniement De Saint Pierre H 424 By Les Arts Florissants

Transforming work for harpsichord and voice

Despite being lesser-known, Marc-Antoine Charpentier is a titan of Baroque era composing who studied many earlier composers for inspiration. A formal and sombre opening to this piece is reminiscent of Couperin’s works for organ and choir. However, this develops into a fare-like exposé featuring unison voices and cheery counterpoint harpsichord parts. Discover Charpentier’s clever composing today performed by ensemble Les Arts Florissants  in Abbaye de Saint Michel en Thiérarche.
