Catalogue Number: 09M021
Reference: 777 589
Description: Consisting of 24 individual movements, this music for a 1744 royal wedding forms an inventory of short pieces for an event which took place over four days. As befitted the occasion, the character of the music is buoyant and witty, and when the atmosphere occasionally veers away from the carefree, it is towards a graceful melancholy rather than grief or pain. Oddly, this is the only new recording of the work available on period instruments. Ensemble 1700 Lund; Göran Karlsson.
