What I'm Reading

Cover Art
Lully, ou, Le musicien du soleil - Beaussant, Phillipe
Call Number: ML410 L956 B4
ISBN: 2070724786
This biography was written by a typical French musicologist, very flamboyant and entertaining, which doesn't make it less good. However, the author is wrong about Louis XIV's lack of education; he was educated, historical documents prove it.
