Dufay, The prince of love

The song is perhaps the musical form in which Dufay was able to best express his immense talent. Each of his 80 songs is a real gem. In his corpus of songs, from the simplest to the most developed, he approaches the genre from his own angle.
Each is worthy to enter the Parnassus of song and become a model. Dufay made his honey from all the aesthetics he met and thus enriched the History of the music of a masterly work that transcends stylistic and temporal boundaries.

Haydn-Vellard – Seven last words by Christ on the cross

My intention, when I wrote 7 short vocal pieces to enunciate the words spoken by
Christ on the cross, was to prepare the listener for the magnifcent slow movements of
Haydn. Each word develops into a three-voice writing: the voice of Christ (tenor)
begins and, as an echo, responds that of his mother (soprano grave) and an angel
(soprano). After having shared this program many times with the Quatuor Debussy, a
brand new cast of singers has been choosed for this recording.
