An excerpt from the beginning of Charpentier’s Te Deum is known to many as the Eurovision TV signal. But it really is worth getting to know the rest of this fine score, with its brightness and grace, its jubilant dance-like music and the fervour of the vocal expression. The artists featured are Martin Gester and Le Parlement de Musique.
