Along with Antonio Vivaldi and Gustav Mahler, Marc-Antoine Charpentier is unquestionably the greatest musical rediscovery since World War II. But it has taken nearly three centuries and the revival of interest in baroque music for this most humble musician to be recognized as one of the greatest French composers. This book is the first comprehensive study of his approximately 550 compositions, including a number of important pieces that remain relatively unknown. A discussion of the composers theoretical writings, a complete catalog of all Charpentiers works, and an extensive bibliography are all given here.
