Description: When Lully's death ended his operatic monopoly, Charpentier wasted no time, producing this five-act trag├ędie lyrique at a Jesuit college in 1688, performed between acts of a Latin play. His Italian propensities are exhibited in formidable contrapuntal composition and da capo-like arias while his use of tonality pungently underlines such action as the very opening where Saul raises Samuel from the dead. 2 CDs. French-English texts. Anders J. Dahlin (tenor), Sara Macliver (soprano), Dean Robinson (bass), Cantillation, Orchestra of the Antipodes; Antony Walker.
