Three centuries ago, Europe was rife with competing ideas and variations of the Baroque style. Here our players survey its many traditions at the church Handel himself attended. Yet despite musical differences, the works are bound by their clarity and vivid drama: in Mondonville’s setting of Psalm 93 a raging sea swirls, while the gods invoke tyrannous winds in Rameau’s last opera. Zelenka’s Mass, meanwhile, pulsates with driving rhythms and thrilling orchestration.
