Before Versailles, the epicenter of power in the Kingdom of France was the Louvre - a genuine theater of ceremonies where music was duty-bound to impress with it's magnificence. In the reign of Louis XIII, the air de cour and ballet mobilized the elite of composers such as Moulinié, Guédron and Chancy. The most famous of them, Boesset, guided the polyphonic air inherited from the Renaissance towards a more intimate conception: far from the sumptuous splendors to come in the shadow of the Sun King, it is a rich array of delicately chiseled miniatures that the combined talents of the Ensemble Correspondances give us the opportunity to hear today.
