CLASSICAL VOCAL REPRINTS

Composer: Elisabeth Jacquet de la Guerre 

A woman composer was a rarity in the 17th century, but her status, first as a child prodigy providing entertainment for aristocratic patrons with her skill on the keyboard, and later as a composer was well established after the publication of volumes of cantatas and a substantial opera, Cephal et Procris, a tragedy in five acts, which was performed at the Academie Royale de la Musique in 1694.

Lisle de Délos

 

2e. Cantate avec Simphonie

 

Edited by Cedric Lee

 

for soprano, violin, flute, oboe, viol & continuo

   
 

This is a substantial work by comparison with many of the contemporary cantatas; far from consisting of 3 Recit-aria pairs, it consists of no fewer than 11 movements. The composer added an instrumental prelude; a ‘Muzette’ is called for by the libretto; as is a movement descriptive of bird song, here titled ‘Simphonie de Rossignol’ and Air; and included with these is a chaconne, as well as brief instrumental introductions to two of the Airs.
