If Marc-Antoine Charpentier’s Latin oratorios rise up to the summits of French music of the ‘Grand Sicle’, they none the less remain isolated cases. At the time the oratorio was as little appreciated in France as it was extolled in Italy – where, in fact, Charpentier discovered the genre while studying with Carissimi in Rome. In any case, what he did with it went way beyond a mere schoolroom exercise! These three oratorios, composed between 1672 and 1698, are superb examples of Charpentier’s individual qualities: an acute sense of the word and an unprecedented dramatic effectiveness.
