Le Beau Parler François

Coming soon!

Some listeners are curious to know more about the historical pronunciation of the French texts in the airs that appear on our new CD (“Jean-Baptiste de Bousset: Airs sérieux“). Nicole Rouillé, a world-leader in this field whose expertise guided us in the recording, will shortly write about this fascinating aspect of performing French baroque vocal music.

In the meantime, why not read her book, “Le Beau Parler François: La prononciation de la langue publique aux XVIIème et XVIIIème siècles” (Éditions Deleatur France)?
