Notes and Editorial Reviews
2015 marks the 300th anniversary of the death of Louis XIV. An autocratic ruler, the Sun King was known for plunging his country into famine with his endless battles, but also for his contributions to the arts. Throughout his seventy-two year reign, music played a crucial role in his royal life. It was meticulously arranged around him, his court, his desires and his hunts. This collection featuring recordings from René Jacobs, William Christie, Philip Herreweghe and many more presents the soundtrack to ordinary days and grand nights at Versailles.
