Robert R. Reilly, March 2011

Le Miroir de Jesus, by French composer Andre Caplet (1878–1925), is a jeweled setting of poems by Henri Gheon that offer meditations on each of the Joyful, Sorrowful, and Glorious Mysteries of the rosary. This work for mezzo-soprano, female chorus, harp, and string quartet reminds me of the finest medieval miniature ivory carvings sculpted for private devotion. Plainchant and French impressionism meld seamlessly together in this exquisite creation, delivered on another Naxos bargain, with conductor Mark Foster, mezzo-soprano Brigitte Desnoues, and the Orchestre des Pays de Savoie (Naxos 8.225043).
