Marc-Antoine Charpentier: A Celebratory Easter Song, ”Alleluia O Filii Et Filiae" By Les Arts Florissants

A culmination of Charpentier’s religious composing

Marc-Antoine Charpentier was introduced to music through his extensive jesuit education, which taught him an appreciation for the great composers. Charpentier was a deeply spiritual person who devoted much of his composing career to creating works for the church. This magnificent and bold work encapsulates his love for his god and his church through it’s confident and well-harmonised melodies. Listen to the Baroque composer’s religious work here.
