Pie Jesu


In 2016, the two works were presented in a single concert at Versailles Palace. While Cherubini’s Requiem, scored for mixed choir and orchestra, but without soloists, is well known, Charles-Henri Plantade’s setting, which shares the same formal characteristics, is a complete discovery. This is the first recording of the work, which was revived on the initiative of the Palazzetto Bru Zane.
