When night fell over Louis XIV’s magnificent palace Versailles, it was either opera or church music that held sway over the royal residence. Jordi Savall will choose four of the most spectacular moments from the Sun King’s festive nights: Charpentier’s Mass for Christmas Eve and the “De profundis” by Delalande as well as nocturnal scenes from operas by Marais and Rameau.
