Marc-Antoine Charpentier(1645-1704) was the most distinguished French religious composer of his era, whose output includes Masses, motets,psalms and oratorios, many of them extended works rich in texture, color and harmony, and contrapuntally resourceful. Melodically, Charpentier derived a distinctive style, imposing French embellishments and phrase structure on a basically Italian idiom. His 30 or so theater pieces reveal wit and facility.

Charpentier was a student of the great Roman oratorio composer Giacomo Carissimi, and his works easily weave Italian dramatic elements with a grand, bright choral style that seems to reflect the reign of the Sun King (even if it was Lully rather than Charpentier who stood at the center of Louis XIV's inner circle).
