Notes & Reviews:

By the age of twenty-one Jean-Baptiste Lully had become Composer of the King's Instrumental Music and for the next thirty years he dominated music life at the court and in French theatres. In these works, written for the Chapel Royal, Lully is inspired to paint a whole sweep of emotions, at once melancholy, plaintive, sweet, tragic, suffering, noble and victorious.
