Reinoud Van Mechelen and his ensemble a nocte temporis have become firm favourites with the BOZAR audience. Having focused on Charpentier, Bach and Irish folk music in recent years, they turn their attention this season to Nicolas Clérambault. The works of this French baroque composer may not be as popular as those of his contemporaries Lully and Rameau, but certainly deserve to stand alongside them, as demonstrated on Van Mechelen's intimate album Cantates françaises. The much-praised Belgian tenor furthers his discovery of Clérambault through several large-scale works, including the Te Deum and the oratorio La femme adultère. The project is a first collaboration with the prestigious Chœur de Chambre de Namur.
