Charpentier: Te Deum - Prelude

Marc-Antoine Charpentier composed six Te Deum settings, although only four of them have survived.[1] Largely because of the great popularity of its prelude, the best known is the Te Deum in D major, H.146, written as a grand motet for soloists, choir, and instrumental accompaniment probably between 1688 and 1698, during Charpentier's stay at the Jesuit Church of Saint-Louis in Paris, where he held the position of musical director.[1]

Charpentier: Te Deum - Prelude

After the work's rediscovery in 1953 by French musicologist Carl de Nys, the instrumental prelude, Marche en rondeau, was chosen in 1954 as the theme music preceding the Eurovision network broadcasts of the European Broadcasting Union.[2] This version was arranged by Guy Lambert and directed by Louis Martini.[3]
