Joseph-Hector Fiocco can certainly be considered the most important Flemish composer of the first half of the eighteenth century, writing music that offers a synthesis of the French, from Lully and Couperin, to the Italian of Vivaldi. Fiocco’s work consists mainly of vocal-instrumental sacred music, masses, motets and leçons de tenebres, as required by the various prominent chapel posts he held throughout his lifetime. His style combines soaring melodic lines with complex fugal writing and innovative and daring harmonies, and the works on this disc are thoroughly representative of that unique style.
