By Gaetan Jarry and Marguerite Louise. By Francois Couperin, Jean-Baptiste Lully, and Michel-Richard de Lalande. Classical. Listening CD. Naxos #CVS008. Published by Naxos (NX.CVS008).

The Sun King's Mass was without any doubt one of the privileged rites for the standing of the glory of the sovereign, as much because of its splendor, as for its ceremonial aspect, which brings time to a halt, solidifying the eternal image of royal power. The greatest composers of the kingdom distinguished themselves by making the holy service a veritable heavenly concert. The bell rang, the fifes and drums announced the arrival of the king in the gallery, the organ burst forth, the Grands Motets by Lully and Delalande enthralled under the golden vaults, the delicate and intimate petits motets by Couperin appear with grace in the alcoves of the Royal Chapel. The mass is performed here by Marguerite Louise and Gaetan Jarry.
