The popularity of the film Tous les matins du monde (All the Mornings of the World) has revived the fortunes of a shadowy composer named Sainte-Colombe, who was active in the late seventeenth century. The film was largely fictitious, but subsequent research, much of it nicely summarized in the notes to this disc, has shed light on who Sainte-Colombe might have been and has actually backed up some of the guesses made by filmmakers and by novelist Pascal Quignard, on whose book Tous les matins du monde was based.

Amongst the many discs recorded for ATMA, this duo is continuing their complete series of works for two violas da gamba by M'sieur Sainte-Colombe. Volume Two of this series, another 2-CD set, echoes the beautiful work done in Volume One, with seventeen more concerts (19-35). Again the players demonstrate a profound empathy with the marvels of the French viola da gamba repertoire. Their approach continues to feel just right, creating a fluid sensuous sound that reinforces the unearthly nature of this unique music.

With this first volume, Les Voix Humaines members Margaret Little and Susie Napper embark on a very ambitious cycle to record all of Sainte Colombe the Elder's 67 "Concerts a deux violes esgales" (concerts for two bass viols). On evidence of the first 18 offered here, the interpretations are consistently quicker and noticeably sunnier compared to the few other recordings of several of these pieces.

If he were so minded, Jordi Savall might hand copies of this CD out to new acquaintances as the musical equivalent of a calling-card. True, he appears here only in the guise of soloist, whereas a more complete portrait would need to include samples of his work as director and conductor; but as an illustration of the range of the viola da gamba, this generously filled disc is exemplary. And although the calling-card might not be handmade, it is the nearest thing to it, since Alia Vox is Savall’s own, newly established label.

How can one account better than Rousseau himself of all that Monsieur de Sainte-Colombe has brought to the viola da gamba, whether it be at the instrumental level (adding the 7th string that gives more depth to the sonority, The silver-plated strings that allow articulated and precise play even on the bass strings), but also an important development of the technique which gives the instrument a palette of sound of a finesse and a sensibility approaching the human voice . It is thanks to these decisive contributions that a school of viola da gamba was able to develop in France, Marais, Couperin and Forqueray being the most prestigious representatives. It seems important to me to pay tribute to this musician of the shadow of whom we are all still the heirs, as his son but also Marin Marais did in their time by dedicating to him two magnificent tombs.

This is an excellent and varied selection of composers from the very well known like Palestrina, Monteverdi, Bach and Vivaldi, through the less famous but familiar like Frescobaldi, Sainte-Colombe and Zelenka, to the downright obscure. It is all delightful: the musicians are uniformly excellent, and include such great names as Gustav Leonhardt, Cantus Colln, Christopher Hogwood and so on. They give fine performances both of the familiar works and of the less familiar ones. Obviously there will be discs you like more than others and you may already have favourite versions of some works, but these discs are never less than very good and are often outstanding.

The 1991 French film Tous les matins du monde (All the Mornings of the World) attracted an audience of unexpected size for a story about French Baroque viol music, becoming a runaway hit in France and Germany and even gained wide distribution in the classical-chary U.S. The commercial ramifications grew with the release of the film's soundtrack, featuring early music giant Jordi Savall on viol; the soundtrack achieved platinum sales levels in its initial release. The film's story, built on a very few sketchy facts about the reclusive seventeenth century viol player known only as Monsieur de Sainte Colombe, drew viewers with its modern resonances touching on the conflict between art and popular success, and partly with its dramatic lighting reminiscent of the paintings of Louis le Nain. The soundtrack has a few pieces with vocals or with a small ensemble of other players.
