The Ensemble Clément Janequin has already explored several times the 'Cries', those Renaissance chansons built on a vast onomatopoeic repertory. Now, 28 years after their legendary Cris de Paris, they return to the genre and considerably expand the geography of their Cries, from Marseille to Valenciennes - and with a disconcerting facility for straddling periods and styles. Hear ye, hear ye! Founded in Paris in 1978 the Ensemble Clément Janequin devotes itself principally to the secular and religious music of the Renaissance. Its interpretations of the Parisian chanson are regarded as authoritative, and recordings of works like Les Cris de Paris, Le Chant des Oyseaulx, Fricassée Parisienne and La Chasse have brought back to life one of golden ages of French music.
"Ensemble Clément Janequin recordings have long been blessed with superb sound quality and this disc is no exception…wholly delightful." IRR
"Dominique Visse and his superb ensemble offer a programme of his wonderful songs, veering from the sacred to the sublime to the downright bawdy" The Independent

“A new venture for one of today's most enterprising vocal ensembles. …the charm of this recital is that of hearing a familiar instrument (I mean the ensemble) being taken in completely new direction, and showing every sign of enjoying itself immensely. ...Bruno Ducol's Le cri... shows off Visse's astonishing vocal flexibility and capacity for lyricism and dramatic characterisation.”
