Regina Coeli is another wonderful spiritual piece by Jean-Baptiste Lully included in “Les Petits Motets”(1687). It was composed for three voices. The motet is full of light & tenderness, it passes a sublime blissful spirit our music genius managed to express in its profound spiritual composition. It seems that Angels themselves passed the scores to the composer to give him a chance to glorify The Blessed Virgin.
I would like to notice again, Esteemed Readers, that to my mind, (though I’m not a music expert), spiritual works by Jean-Baptiste Lully is an amazing dimension full of treasures & discoveries. Lully is not a static composer. He is versatile, unpredictable & capable to catch the essence of hidden things…I suppose that Louis XIV, whose artistic taste was well-known, appreciated his art for similar reasons.
Vive le Roy! 🙂
