Marc-Antoine Charpentier: Salve Regina H 47 By Les Arts Florissants

5 min
Marc-Antoine Charpentier: Salve Regina H 47 By Les Arts Florissants

A choral masterpiece of the age

As a universally well-regarded composer even in his day, Marc-Antoine Charpentier was never short of commissions. The voices in this work commissioned by the church are introduced by a brief organ melody, which is repeated later on and then adopted by the voices. In a simple psalm-like form, Charpentier demonstrates his command of religious composing. Appreciate this spiritual piece here.
