Description: If you've still got room for French Christmas in your heart in February, you'll warm to this 40-minute mass from 1788 which sets the Latin texts of the Mass to a series of noëls - brilliantly chosen and artfully conceived. The second disc's 51 minutes are devoted to the 1741 publication of 15 noëls, just one batch of the many which Corrette rescued for posterity. 2 CDs. Anne Magouët (soprano), Guillmette Laurens (mezzo), Olivier Vernet (Silbermann organ of St. Maurice, Soultz-Haut-Rhin).
