French Motets is a collection of seven beautiful motets by French composers of the 19th century. It includes evocative settings by the lesser-known Massenet and Caplet as well as motets by Franck, Faure, Saint-Saens and a new two-part version of Gounod's Ave Maria (based on J.S. Bach's Prelude in C).
The Choral Programme Series is now a well-established programming tool for many choirs as it offers a wealth of fresh material from many eras and in many styles. Also offering great value for money as each volume in the series provides up to forty minutes of music.
