Reinoud Van Mechelen and his ensemble A Nocte Temporis continue their 'Haute-Contre Trilogy' with Rameau's favourite singer, Pierre de JĂ©liote, probably the finest haute-contre in history. (Reminder: this is a high tenor voice, not to be confused with the countertenor!) Rameau wrote an enormous amount of music for JĂ©liote, who was not only a singer but also a guitarist, a cellist and even a composer. The album pays tribute to this native of the BĂ©arn region, who was born in 1713 and died at the ripe old age of eighty-four, with a selection of airs by Rameau (from Hippolyte et Aricie, Les FĂȘtes d'HĂ©bĂ©, PlatĂ©e, Castor et Pollux, Les BorĂ©ades) but also by Dauvergne, Colin de Blamont, Mondonville, Rebel and Francoeur. Though some are well known, others are much more rarely performed today.
