Les cantiques spirituels de Jean Racine Pascal Collasse (1649 - 1709)

“Pascal Collasse has finally received the honor of a recording . Unjustly accused for more than two centuries of being “Lully’s secretary”, not to say a mere plagiarist, he may now be regarded as having been in some way rehabilitated.”
