The Book


André Campra (1660-1744) was one of the leading figures of the renewal of French musical styles, nourished by Italian influences, which is characteristic of the Regency and the reign of Louis XV. Although this 'réunion des goûts' is more familiar to us in the fields of opera and chamber music, it also permeated the sacred repertory. The Messe des morts (Requiem) of the Sous-maître de la Chapelle Royale embodies better than any other the combination of deep spirituality with a new-found exuberance, sumptuousness and invention. Campra's masterpiece, accompanied here by one of his grands motets (In convertendo), led the way for other typically 'Gallican' requiems whose serene light was to shine anew in later centuries in the settings by Gabrien Fauré and Maurice Duruflé.
