I’ve played organ reductions of the Prelude to Charpentier’s Te Deum innumerable times, but this one is wonderful for a listen. The tempo is over the top and you get to see a serpent, among the other period instruments. And the rest of the performance is a pleasure as well.
Listen to as little or as much as you please. And have a Happy New Year for 2014!
