  • Composed in 1663, the "Airs à 4, basse continu, (...), on the paraphrase of some psalms and hymns by Messire Antoine Godeau" are small motets representative of French Baroque music in the time of Louis the 14th in Paris and in Versailles.
  • The score brings together two compositions (in the same tone) noted consecutively in the collection of their publication. They can be executed independently or together.
  • When the overwhelmed spirit and I suffer every day (text in French) are paraphrases of Antoine Godeau (1605-1672) of psalm 4. The author, bishop of Grasse and Vence, has written many poetic Christians texts, homilies and poems. His paraphrases of psalms were used by different composers in the 17th century.
