STUDY GUIDE FOR CHORISTERS

Note: We are still having rehearsal on April 4th (tonight) . 

As always, use your judgement.

Charpentier: Te Deum (H146)

Live performance video

The recording by Les Arts Florissants and William Christie is available on Amazon. If you look at links to other CDs, make sure you're looking at the Te Deum in D (H146), because Charpentier wrote several settings. Also make sure you're getting the entire work; there are many recordings of the instrumental prelude only.
