OOM: A Nocte Temporis / Reinoud van Mechelen
Oh, ma belle brunette Even without wavy locks, she steals the heart of every delicate music fan: the brunette, or the tender song of life that sings of the stirrings of the heart and natural beauties in elegant melodies and ditto poetry. With frontman Reinoud Van Mechelen as tenor on duty and Anna Besson on traverso, the forgotten genre emerges from the folds of the Baroque a nocte temporis. The result: a stunningly versatile anthology, from delicate ballad to overconfident drinking song!
A Nocte Temporis
Tenor Reinoud Van Mechelen founded A Nocte Temporis in 2016. The formation started as a chamber music ensemble and has become a baroque orchestra. The company released very well-received CDs with music by Johann Sebastian Bach and Marc-Antoine Charpentier, among others. Their album of music by Louis-Nicolas Clérambault was awarded a CHOC de Classica, a Diapason d'Or, a Diamant d'Opéra and a Le Choix de France Musique, among others.
Reinoud Van Mechelen
Reinoud Van Mechelen graduated from the Royal Conservatory of Brussels in 2012 in the class of Dina Grossberger. Even then, he attracted attention at talent programs such as the Académie Baroque Européenne d'Ambronay and Le Jardin des Voix, the Academy of Les Arts Florissants. Van Mechelen's soulful and virtuoso performances earned him the Caecilia Prize for Young Musician of the Year from the Belgian music press in 2017. Van Mechelen is in demand with almost all the outstanding early music formations of the moment, including Le Concert Spirituel, Les Talens Lyriques, Le Poème Harmonique, Il Gardellino, L'Arpeggiata and Collegium Vocale Gent. He also made waves on the circuit with his own ensemble a nocte temporis, including the rediscovery of the most illustrious 'haute-contres' of the Baroque.
