"Arise, my muse, and to thy tuneful lyre compose a mighty ode whose charming nature may inspire the bosom of some listening God"

Music fit for royalty: Charpentier’s majestic Te Deum (famed as the opening music for the Eurovision Song Contest) was written in honour of the Sun King, Louis XIV, and its grandeur and elegance reflect the magnificence of his palace at Versailles.

Across the Channel, written just one year later, Purcell’s Come, Ye Sons of Art celebrates the birthday of Queen Mary with music of sheer delight.
