Join Dr. Lewis Baratz this week on Well-Tempered Baroque for an exploration of music at the court of Louis XIII.  Louis assumed the throne at age 9 after the assassination of his father, Henri IV, in 1610. The king played the lute, loved to dance, and understood the importance of the arts for the glory of his kingdom, a lesson his son, Louis XIV, would stamp into his government.  Tune in this week or stream to enjoy the music promoted by King Louis XIII of France.  Works of Charles Tessier, Pierre Guédron, Estienne Moulinié, Jacques Champion de Chambonnièresm, and Guillaume Bouzignac.
