Looking for recommended recordings of this French Baroque sacred music, especially Marc-Antoine Charpentier and Francois Couperin. 


Thanks in advance.

Listening to the Office du Jeudi Saint online, this is sublime!  I just ordered a 2-CD set that includes these Jeudi Saint and Vendredi Saint offices.  Couldn't locate Mercredi Saint, but I'll check some more sources, perhaps in Europe.  Many thanks for the recommendation of these recordings, and of course my great thanks to @christopher3393 for this thread!  While I've loved the Couperin for many years, I'd never heard the Charpentier Leçons until today!
