Thomas-Louis Bourgeois (1676-1751) is one of the masters of the French chamber cantata at the time of the Regence, when-at last-it was permissible to introduce Italian influences openly in France. His imaginative music, as elegant as it is compositionally skillful, forms a welcome complement to the works of contemporaries such as Campra or Rameau who are infinitely better known today. Carolyn Sampson and Le Concert Lorrain revive for us the charming insouciance of the Regence.
