Listen to excerpts from the disc
Silentium - Motets for size

(...) This recording, dedicated to the repertoire of the 'voix de taille', a repertoire that is too often neglected today, is skilfully interspersed with instrumental pieces by Henry Du Mont, whom Brossard judged 'very excellent', and by Louis Couperin, whom he recalls as having given Roberday a subject for a fugue. A musical Grand Tour, then, which leads us (perhaps) into Matho's library, but also more surely into those of Brossard and Düben.

Jean Duron

"This programme is the evocation of an imaginary library, that of Jean-Baptiste Matho, famous singer of the Chapelle Royale under the reign of Louis XIV. A musical testament at the turn of the 18th century, in the very special world of the petit motet for taille (tenor), calling on Charpentier, Campra, Bouteiller, Suffret and of course Brossard, who calls out to us with this magnificent exordium: 'Silentium. Dormi in hortis dilecta mea. Silentium. Sleep in the gardens, my love.

About the Sébastien de Brossard Ensemble

The Ensemble Sébastien de Brossard in full swing
The choice of a composer as a mentor for an ensemble is not a trivial matter.
My first encounter with Sébastien de Brossard took place in 2003 during the recording of his trios and cantatas.
Since then, his music has never left me and it seemed obvious to me to place my new ensemble under the auspices of this composer.

Why him?
First of all for the quality of his music: "With diminished sounds, Brossard, forming his basses, made sparkling graces shine in his designs."
Serré de Rieux

Then of course for his curiosity:
"When Brossard with his big nose
The shops searched
There is nothing left of Sensez
Que d'autres voudroient acheter ".

But also for his modesty:
"I must admit, the court is a country whose roads and detours I know so little about that if someone is not kind enough to act as my guide, I run a great risk of getting lost.

Brossard was a ferryman.
May the Ensemble Sébastien de Brossard be in his image.

Fabien Armengaud
