Hervé Niquet once more returns to the gloriously rich world of 17th-century French sacred music with his musicians from Le Concert Spirituel. On this occasion, he is bringing to our attention a scarcely-known composer – in Louis Le Prince – who worked in Lisieux in Lower Normandy, interspersing the maître de chapelle’s Missa Macula non est in te with a mighty handful of motets by Marc-Antoine Charpentier (a figure much better known to us today in part through Hervé Niquet’s own frequent stylistically-masterful renditions of Charpentier’s music).
 
Mass and motets are given in this new recording from Glossa in versions for female voices and instruments. Whilst some of the pieces sung here were written specifically for high voices, it was a regular practice in the Baroque era to perform polyphonic masses with forces locally available and, thus, convents could well have sung Le Prince’s six-part mass – a homage to the Virgin Mary – making use of female singers. This practice is outlined by Fannie Vernaz in her accompanying booklet article and follows in the line of Hervé Niquet’s exploration of the Requiem Mass by Pierre Bouteiller (a work which he adapted for a choir consisting only of male voices).
 
The gorgeous sonorities of Charpentier’s motets (and a petit motet by Jean-Baptiste Lully) contribute to an Office constructed by Hervé Niquet around the Ordinary of the Mass by Louis Le Prince, to demonstrate with great clarity the variety of the musical glories of Louis XIV’s grand siècle.
