The court of Louis XIV enjoyed music of unsurpassed richness and splendour, and the choral works of Michel-Richard de Lalande (1657-1726)  have a majesty and expressive power that still astounds today. This sumptuous music from the French Baroque has been close to our hearts for many years and our performances and recordings have enjoyed critical acclaim; BBC Music Magazine described our recording of Lalande’s De profundis as “overwhelming”.
