François Boucher: Pastorale (detail)

Jean-Philippe Rameau left behind only a small amount of sacred music. His grand motets, settings of psalm texts, were composed between 1713 and 1720. Vox Luminis, under the direction of Lionel Meunier, presents the three remaining complete motets.

Recorded live in concert August 25, 2018, in Tivoli Vredenburg’s Main Hall, as part of the Utrecht Early Music Festival.

Thanks to Classical WFMT’s association with the European Broadcasting Union, we’re able to offer tonight’s program as a stream for 30 days following the broadcast. A blue “Listen” button will appear when the stream is available.
