In the mid-seventeenth century, the Leçons de Ténèbres became the subject of increasingly popular musical compositions.
At the end of the reign of Louis XIV, France was a land of piety, but also of Italianism in music, including religious music. The emotions composed by Couperin for his female singers are so dramatic that they sound like something out of an opera... Vocality and spirituality are artfully combined, testifying to the refinement of fine French singing practised as much in the salons and theatres as in places of worship.
