Elisabeth Claude Jacquet de la Guerre - "Judith" (6)

Elisabeth Claude Jacquet de la Guerre's work Judith. Picked just because it has my name. Short but sweet. Bit dramatic. The harpsichord kind of purrs behind the bell like vocal. I find this type of operatic delivery difficult to get into but I'm trying to embrace the 'Italian style' more fully recently, and not listen to it with the kind of prejudice I had against its formal sound when younger.
