"The "In Convertendo" grand motets (5 stars) only last 30Min the rest of the DVD are simply interviews and promotions of other Rameau DVDs. Not a very good deal."

"This is French baroque at its best level. Not only does the DVD contain a first class performance, it also has really interesting interviews with Maestro Christie and other specialists that discuss the relevance of the pieces. The soloists were generally good, although I would have preferred a different haute-contre soloist, as Jeffrey Thompson doesn't possess the performance skill one would expect at this level of performing, not being able to peacefully express the text without making strange faces."
