By Choeur Marguerite Louise, Daniel Cuiller, and Ensemble Stradivaria. By Esprit Antoine Blanchard and Francois Colin de Blamont. Classical. Listening CD. Naxos #CVS007. Published by Naxos (NX.CVS007).

Two rival yet similar works, an illustration of a "Quarrel of the Te Deums", a true war of mottled violin scores, a frivolous echo of Louis XV's final victories. It is also the rediscovery of two of the most talented composers amongst Rameau's contemporaries, Francois Colin de Blamont and Esprit Joseph Antoine Blanchard. Daniel Cuiller appropriates this music with the voracity which had led him to revive a previous Te Deum, on that occasion by Henri Madin, and which was covered with praise. Add to this the brilliant singers of the Marguerite Louise choir which is directed by Gaetan Jarry and the virtuoso musicians of Stradivaria, Daniel replied with enthusiasm to this "commission" for the Royal Chapel of Versailles.
