Myths & Allegories

by Les Délices

Les Délices’ second album, “Myths & Allegories”, features vocal and instrumental music inspired by Homer's Odyssey. American soprano Clara Rottsolk is featured in Thomas-Louis Bourgeois’ Les Sirènes, and Elisabeth Jacquet de la Guerre’s dramatic cantata Le Sommeil d’Ulisse (in a new arrangement by Debra Nagy), plus selections from Jean-Féry Rebel’s 1703 opera, Ulysse. Ulysses’ long-faithful wife Penelope pines from afar as symbolized by Rebel’s violin sonata La Fidelle, while Michel Pignolet de Montéclair’s La Guerre imagines Ulysses and his men on the battlefield of the Trojan War.
