Paolo Lorenzani (1640-1713), like Lully, was Italian turned Francophile. These motets, a delightful find, overlay Italian vitality with a strong French accent – literally in the performers’ pronunciation of the Latin texts, and stylistically as voices and instruments alternate and echo in colourful variety.
