Music for the Sun King


Featuring rarely performed music from the Chapelle Royale, this indulgent programme includes Jean Baptiste Lully's celebratory motet for double choir Plaude laetare Gallia, written for the baptism of the King's grandson. Experience music from French operá to that of the private court, including a unique opportunity to hear Marin Marais' exhilarating musical representation of a Tempest that was to take the Baroque era quite literally by storm!
