In 1817, two years after the restoration of the monarchy by Louis XVIII, the French court attended a performance of Cherubini’s Requiem in memory of Louis XVI; a few years later, in 1823, the thirtieth anniversary of the death of Marie-Antoinette provided the occasion for giving Charles-Henri Plantade’s Messe des morts in her memory. Berlioz had just arrived in Paris, and Napoleon had recently died in exile on the island of Saint Helena. In 2015, the two works were presented in a single concert at Versailles Palace. While Cherubini’s Requiem, scored for mixed choir and orchestra, but without soloists, is well known, Charles-Henri Plantade’s setting, which shares the same formal characteristics, is a complete discovery. It provides a striking transitional stage between the models of the Ancien Régime and early Romanticism, and displays a wealth of invention reminiscent of Méhul, Cherubini and even Rossini. This is the first recording of the work, which was revived on the initiative of the Palazzetto Bru Zane. A noted specialist in French music and large-scale sacred forms, Hervé Niquet brings out the full strength of these two works, recorded in the Chapelle Royale at Versailles, which further enrich the Alpha/Château de Versailles collection.

Casting Crowns' driving pop/rock style and lead singer Mark Hall's vocal delivery of the group's hard-hitting but devout praise & worship songs has won them scores of fans and a good deal of critical acclaim. For the Mark A. Miller-produced Thrive, Casting Crowns' sixth studio album, the band has tempered its sound somewhat, giving it a more roots-oriented, Mumford & Sons kind of direction and feel. ~ Steve Leggett

Beginning with "Greater," one of Marvin Sapp's funkiest contemporary gospel numbers -- with an unmistakable nod to fellow Midwesterners and funk pioneers Zapp -- You Shall Live never lets up. While its latter half slows down for a period that involves more contemplative material, it contains the same level of conviction heard in vigorous numbers like "Honor and Glory" and "Count on You." The album is the follow-up to 2012's I Win, Sapp's third consecutive number one Billboard gospel release.

The planets have aligned, Snoop Dogg is back. Following the 2013 reggae episode titled Reincarnated, released under the alias Snoop Lion, the Californian rapper grants another wish: a gospel album. A double album in fact! Throughout the 32 tracks, Snoop Dogg strings together countless featurings. Faith Evans, the Clark Sisters, Mary Mary, B Slade, John P. Kee, Fred Hammond, to name only a few. Between hints of 90s RnB (Sunshine Fell Good, Sunrise), smooth and passionate touches (Bible Of Love), soul with kitsch brass (One More Day or On Time with B Slade) and seventies synthesisers (Come as You Are), gospel and a hint of hip-hop (Changed with Jazze Pha or Chizzle featuring Daz Dillinger), Snoop simmers his recipe in the best of pots. And as it’s made with love, it can only smell delicious! Cherry on top, you can enjoy the King’s legendary nonchalance in Change The World featuring pastor John P. Kee. A highly anticipated release. Brilliant! © Charlotte Saintoin/Qobuz

On her third full-length album, 2018's Kirk Franklin-produced Hiding Place, singer Tori Kelly pivots away from the secular pop of her platinum-selling 2015 album, Unbreakable Smile, and delivers a joyful set of faith-based songs that balance contemporary gospel soulfulness with warm R&B hooks. Given Kelly's move to a sleek contemporary gospel vibe, her fans who came on board with previous singles like "Dear No One" and "Could've Been Us" might worry that she has sacrificed some of her own personality and acoustic guitar-based style in service of fitting into a specific genre box. Thankfully, while there is an overall tonal shift here, the results feel organic and true to who Kelly, a practicing Christian, seems to be. One of the pleasing aspects of Hiding Place is the organic soundscape Franklin and Kelly achieve, deftly combining Stevie Wonder-esque '70s instrumentation with an ear for the ringing, sleek gospel productions Franklin is known for. Tracks like the opening "Masterpiece," featuring rapper Lecrae, and the buoyant "Sunday" find Franklin framing Kelly's highly resonant voice with vibrant gospel backing vocalists, organ, and crisp bass grooves. Elsewhere, Kelly is joined by Anthony Hamilton's vocal trio, the Hamiltones, on the passionate "Help Us to Love," and displays her knack for earnest, emotive balladry on the thoughtful "Psalm 42." Franklin himself joins her on the uplifting "Never Alone," as does singer Jonathan McReynolds for the laid-back acoustic guitar number "Just as Sure." Certainly, taken as a shift from the world of pop to gospel, there's a sense of genre exploration and discovery here, and Hiding Place is as much a Kirk Franklin production as a Tori Kelly solo album. That said, even when she is singing a song written by Franklin, as with the searching "Questions," in which she ruminates on the challenges of keeping one's faith in the face of tragedy and despair, the sentiments always feel genuine. Ultimately, while the gospel nature of the album will certainly cater to fans of Christian-based pop, the religious messages shouldn't stop Kelly's secular fans from enjoying what she's achieved here. ~ Matt Collar
