Gabriel Vialle
La Marseillaise, February 2000

"Ici, avec son Ensemble vocal et avec, au superbe Cavaillé-Coll de Saint Antoine des Quinze-Vingts de Paris, l'organiste Eric Lebrun, [Michel Piquemal] redonne vie à trois Messes brèves et à des Motets (Ave Maria, Salve Regina, etc.) qui prennent toute leur signification grâce à la conviction et à l'exigence du chef. La douceur, la tendresse sont sans doute les éléments de base de cette musique qui n'exclut pas non plus la gravité et les manifestations d'un enthousiasme populaire empreint de simplicité."

Un très grand disque, de très grandes oeuvres malgré leur discrétion et une très grande interprétation."

"Here, with his Ensemble Vocal, and with the organist Eric Lebrun on the superb Cavaillé-coll of Saint Antoine of Quinze-Vingts of Paris, [Michel Piquemal] breathes life into three short Masses and motets (Ave Maria, Salve Regina, etc.) which take all their meaning from the conviction and demands of the conductor. Softness and tenderness are undoubtedly the basic elements of this music, although it eschews neither gravity nor simple demonstrations of popular enthusiasm.

A great recording of very important works, despite their obscurity, and a very good interpretation."
