The circulation of artists and sovereigns between France and England in the 17th century resulted in the establishment of highly original genres in England. The first recitatives, large-scale airs from masques and dramatic 'scenes' provided fertile ground for experimentation and prepared the way for the birth of semi-opera. Sébastien Daucé explores this English vocal art in a program tailor-made Lucile Richardot, one of today's most fascinating voices. In the exquisite setting provided by Ensemble Correspondances, subtly blends music, love, night and melancholy.
