Description: Titled "Grands Motets", this extra-budget priced boxing also includes two Petits Motets (but who's arguing?), representing the majority of Lully's non-stage works. Written for the Chapel Royal, they contain the same sweep of emotion and palette of orchestral color as his operas and ballets. 3 CDs. Le Concert Spirituel; Hervé Niquet. Original 1994 Naxos releases.
