Volume 2 of the series was also recorded at La Flèche, with all the vibrant sonorities that bring this music to life. François Couperin's Messe pour les paroisses (1690) is accompanied by David Ponsford's transcription of Charpentier's Messe pour plusieurs instruments au lieu des orgues (1674), a work which, Ponsford is convinced, began life as an organ mass (now lost) and was then orchestrated to fulfil the musical requirements of a major religious festival at Notre Dame de la Mercy in Paris, when the purchase of an organ was withheld for legal reasons.
