Classical Notes
Marc-Antoine Charpentier – Te Deum

Perhaps no piece of music evokes more pungently our image of the court of the Sun King, Louis XIV, than the well-loved ‘Prelude’ to Marc-Antoine Charpentier's ‘To Deum.’ Yet, though Louis may at some time have heard this setting of the canticle, it was not in fact written for the court at all but, in all probability, for one of the Paris churches with which Charpentier was at one time associated.
