For 43 years (1683-1726), Lalande's music occupied a central position at the courts of Louis XIV and Louis XV, where his grands motets and instrumental suites set a style admired then and long after, both in the royal chapel and at the Paris Concert spirituel. Recent festivals at Versailles, as well as many editions, performances and recordings worldwide, underline the importance of Lalande as an undisputed master of the French Baroque. With over 3,000 music examples, details of performing requirements and of all source materials, as well as with comprehensive indexes and thematic locators, this Thematic Catalogue makes Lalande's compositions fully accessible to musicians, musicologists, and music lovers.
