Description

The "Te Deum" (H 146) is unquestionably the best known composition of Marc-Antoine Charpentier (1643–1704), especially since its "Prélude en rondeau" was made the Eurovision signature tune. Although Charpentier set the "Te Deum" altogether four times, this is his only setting employing a "military band", i.e. trumpets and kettledrums. This brilliant and magnificent piece was frequently played at victory celebrations and other occasions of public jubilation during the 17th century. Even today it is still ideal for festive church services and concerts. The present edition stands at the forefront of scholarship and provides a complete, newly edited Urtext of Charpentier's masterpiece.
