A fantastic group and a super dramatic piece! I’m always in awe of Ensemble Pygmalion‘s choir, and the intense shapes they manage to get together. If you can’t make it to Versailles, other good places to listen to this are lying down with your eyes closed or walking outside on a clear night.
Unfortunately, Pichon and the ensemble’s scheduled performance of Monteverdi’s Vespers at the Park Avenue Armory (NYC) this month was cancelled due to COVID-19.
