“Aside from the lack of any insight whatsoever into Lully’s music, this volume has other deficiencies. It glosses over the most crucial years of Lully’s career, the years when he consolidated his remarkable relationship with Louis XIV. . . . R.H.F. ¬†Scott, was quite obviously fascinated by Lully’s homosexuality but seemingly had neither knowledge of nor interest in his music.”—Giordano Bruno on Amazon

From Amazon: “This volume of essays on Jean-Baptiste Lully and his musical legacy honours the distinguished French baroque scholar James R. Anthony.
