In Prayers for the Convalescence of Louis XV, respected French Baroque specialist Graham Sadler presents his edition of two oft-overlooked motets by Jean-Phillipe Rameau. These motets (arrangements, probably by Rameau himself of choruses from Castor et Pollux and Les Indes gallants) were performed in thanks for the unexpected recovery from a life-threatening illness of Louis XV in 1744. The arrangements are for baritone, four-part choir and orchestra, and the edition received its premier performance by Vox Luminis (dir. Lionel Meunier) at Utrecht Early Music Festival in 2018.
