L’Académie du Roi Soleil

L’Académie du Roi Soleil is delighted to present François Couperin’s sublime Leçons de ténèbres pour le mercredi saint (1714), a setting of verses from the Lamentations of Jeremiah composed for the liturgies of Holy Week at the Abbaye royale de Longchamp. Two soprano voices (Margaret Carpenter Haigh and Hannah De Priest) sing both as soloists and in duet accompanied by Nicolas Haigh (organ) and David Bevan Ellis (viola da gamba). Couperin’s rich suspension-filled writing explores the profound depths of sorrow and human suffering found in Jeremiah’s text. The ethereal harmonies of the Leçons are coupled with haunting selections from Le Sieur de Machy’s 1685 collection, Pièces de Violle, for unaccompanied viola da gamba.
