André Campra (1660-1744) is considered to be one of the major figures in the French music revival. Known primarily for his operas, this program focuses on his Requiem which is an unjustly neglected masterpiece of the sacred repertoire. Here the piece is accompanied by one of his important motets, In convertendo. This music helped pave the way for French composers such as Gabriel Fauré and Maurice Duruflé. K617 has brought together a talented group of performers for this disc, led by conductor Olivier Schneebeli. The result is a benchmark recording.
