Couperin’s Trois Leçons de Ténèbres are amongst the small amount of the composer’s sacred music that was published during his lifetime. They are intensely personal, depicting the prophet Jeremiah’s bitter anguish in settings that are quite unique. Also included here are Couperin’s joyful motets Laetentur caeli and Venite, exsultemus Domino, and a remarkable Magnificat.

A selection of works by the greatest harpsichord composer of all — François Couperin, and from contemporary British composer Graham Lynch, who is a very worthy successor with music that is expressive, descriptive, deep and exceptionally rich, showing that the harpsichord is capable of real expression. The Lynch pieces are receiving their first recordings. Established virtuoso Assi Karttunen is from Finland and this is her first album for Divine Art, and a showcase for her amazing talent at the keyboard.

Music for Holy Week. François Couperin's 'Leçons de Ténèbres' (c. 1713-17), a setting of the Lamentations of Jeremiah, fused devotional expression with a dramatic performing style embodied here by sopranos Lucy Crowe and Elizabeth Watts. Two Trio Sonatas and a 'Stabat Mater' by Sébastien de Brossard round out this luminous programme.

”The method that I present here is a kind of restitution to the public, having profited as much as possible from the compliments they have so kindly given me concerning my art. I have added my little discoveries to this and thus I will feel that I have done enough in discharging my duty to them. Perhaps a few people will say that I work against my own best interests in these disclosures of my studies, but I will renounce them forever, without any reservations at all, whenever it is a matter of usefulness to others.” (Francois Couperin, L’Art de Toucher le Clavecin)

Although less well known than his nephew François, Louis Couperin was one of the finest and most influential keyboard composers of the seventeenth century, his music mixing elegance, refined lyrical expressiveness, structural clarity and a touch of noble melancholy in a way that is always interesting and frequently powerful. These qualities suffuse the movements of his many suites, most notably perhaps in the slower ones–the eloquent préludes non mésurés (in which the music is only half notated, so as to allow the performer to exercise his improvisatory skills), the expansive allemandes, and perhaps above all in the gripping repetitions of the concluding chaconnes and passacailles–but on this disc it is also represented by a moving Tombeau lamenting the death of the lutenist Blancrocher. Laurence Cummings is a neat and intelligent player whose sound technique enables him to make the best of the resonant yet gentle sonorities of his instrument, and he is well recorded. A must for harpsichord enthusiasts, and a real bargain for all.

Gerard Lesne has led a unique career: largely self-taught, he began as a jazz and rock singer who not only converted to more serious music, but became identified as one of the leading countertenors in the early music genre. He has sung with several early music ensembles, including the Clemencic Consort and with the group he founded, Il Seminario Musicale. The sound quality of Lesne's voice has been described as the male counterpart to the female contralto.

As the foremost representative of one of the most illustrious musical dynasties in history, Francois Couperin achieved distinction in every contemporary genre except opera. But it was in his pieces for the harpsichord that he revealed his personality – La Couperin, from the 21st Ordre, is a witty self-portrait (marked "with moderate vivacity"!).

Alexei Lubimov is a Russian pianist who also plays fortepiano and harpsichord. In his early years he studied at the Moscow Central Music School, and in 1963, entered the Moscow Conservatory, where he studied with Heinrich Neuhaus and Lew Naumov. He developed a strong interest in Baroque music and 20th century modernist works. Lubimov gave the Soviet premieres of many western compositions, including pieces by Charles Ives, Arnold Schoenberg, John Cage, Terry Riley, Pierre Boulez, and Karlheinz Stockhausen, which brought censorship from the Soviet authorities. For a number of years he was prevented from traveling outside the Soviet Union. Turning to his interest in period instruments and authentic performance practices, he founded the Moscow Baroque Quartet and co-founded the Moscow Chamber Academy with Tatiana Grindenko.
