Expanded Second Edition

Music researched and played by the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Paris under the direction of Pascal Duc.

Pascal Duc began his career in music working in the Direction régionale for Cultural Affairs in the Paris basin (the Île de France) and as administrator of the Festival of the Île de France. He met Philippe Herreweghe at a moment when the rediscovery of ancient music was taking off in France; this led to a collaboration round the Chapelle Royale with the Orchestre des Champs- Elysées. Pascal then became musical advisor to William Christie and Les Arts florissants. He still holds this post while being the Head of the Department of Early Music at the Conservatoire national supérieur de musique et de danse de Paris. Pascal has prepared a great number of working scores for Les Arts florissants, among which may be mentioned: Monteverdi’s Madrigals, Books 1 to 7 (8 and 9 are in preparation); Handel’s Belshazzar and Te Deum HWV 208; Fauré and Messager’s Mass for the Association of the Fishermen of Villerville, a version for choir, organ, and violin; Purcell’s Incidental Music for The Virtuous Wife; and for Distress’d Innocence.
