"We are only at the very beginning of the immense task of understanding the vocal, instrumental, and choreographic practices of late sixteenth century France," writes this disc's annotator. It's Italy and its gigantic wedding spectacles that get all the attention at the end of the sixteenth century. (Imagine if Jenna Bush married the son of the president of Exxon Mobil and the White House enlisted hundreds of artists and musicians to build the ceremony.) This disc is, perhaps, for specialists, but it's a lot of fun for anybody.

For many, the image of Henri III can be summarized as that of an effeminate king, wearing earrings and playing with bilboquet with his favourites, the famous "mignons", while being unable to remedy the wars of religion. One of French history's most misunderstood princes.

Je voudrais avoir la froideur de l'entomologiste en entamant ce récit. Prendre les pièces une par une, remonter le temps. Éclater le temps. Disséquer. Poser. Observer. Dater. Comprendre. C'est l'histoire de deux êtres rares : Cavanna et Choron. C'est l'histoire d'un premier journal, puis d'un deuxième, d'un troisième : tous créés par une bande de kamikazes, ivres de liberté et bourrés de talent. …
