Louis XIV - the Sun King or Louis the Great, as he was also known - ruled France with an iron fist for over half a century, from 1651 to his death in 1715, outliving his son and even his grandson. His court at the Palace of Versailles became the most dazzling on the Continent, and through his intelligence and cunning, he made France the leading power of Europe.

The year 1715 marks the tercentenary of the death of the Sun King. As well as being the autocratic personality who plunged his country into famine with his endless battles, Louis XIV was also an artistic system developed from beginning to end of his 60-year reign. At the moment when Versailles became the palace we know today, music played a crucial role in his royal ascent, meticulously arranged around him, his court, his desires and his hunts. From the blossoming of the young Louis to the pomp of Versailles, by way of the musical accompaniment to the events of an ordinary day in the palace, the artists of harmonia mundi lay the table out before us; the banquet will be truly royal.

EAC | FLAC (image+.cue, log) | Covers Included | 65:46 | 351 MB
Genre: Classical, Sacred | Label: Alpha Classics | Catalog: ALPHA 965

To create a sense of the Venetian liturgical celebrations attendant on the birth of Louis XIV in 1638, Benjamin Chénier and the Galilei Consort have constructed a sumptuous performance from various works composed by Giovanni Gabrieli, Giovanni Rovetta, Giovanni Antonio Rigatti, Claudio Monteverdi, and Giovanni Bassano. Rovetta had been chosen by Louis XIII to assemble the singers and instrumentalists, and his Kyrie, Gloria, and Credo from the Messa e Salmi Concertati form the core of this historical simulation, which is completed by a Sanctus and Agnus Dei by Rigatti, and various instrumental pieces and motets.

Jean-Christian Petitfils, "Louis XIV"
Perrin | 2014 | ISBN: N/A | French | EPUB | 751 pages | 2.8 MB

Ce livre est autre chose qu'une biographie classique. C'est tout le règne qu'il embrasse dans une vision générale de la société du Grand Siècle, renouvelant le sujet, mettant à mal bien des clichés et des vieilles lunes grâce à une documentation considérable, dont de nombreuses études étrangères peu accessibles, grâce tout autant à une analyse remarquable, originale, juste, du pouvoir, de ses serviteurs, de ses moyens d'action et de propagande, de sa grandeur, mais aussi de ses limites et de ses contradictions. …

Label: Naxos | Tracks: 24 | Time: 52:55 min

Musical life at the court of Louis XIV was elaborate and spectacular, but what kind of music did the Sun King enjoy on withdrawing from public gaze? This album reveals the intimate sound world inside the private chambers of the grand royal palaces, exploring the depths of human emotion that Baroque art sought to express. The softly expressive combination of traverso, viola da gamba and theorbo was known as the Royal Trio, called upon for such duties as the official retirement-to-bed ceremony. Lullys Chaconne pour le Coucher du Roi provides a fitting close to this rich and fascinating programme.
The Military Enlightenment: War and Culture in the French Empire from Louis XIV to Napoleon

The Military Enlightenment: War and Culture in the French Empire from Louis XIV to Napoleon by Christy L. Pichichero
English | November 15th, 2017 | ISBN: 1501709291, 9781501709296, 9781501709654 | 318 Pages | True PDF | 34.36 MB

The Military Enlightenment brings to light a radically new narrative both on the Enlightenment and the French armed forces from Louis XIV to Napoleon. Christy Pichichero makes a striking discovery: the Geneva Conventions, post-traumatic stress disorder, the military "band of brothers," and soldierly heroism all found their antecedents in the eighteenth-century French armed forces.

Tallandier | 2015 | ISBN: 1021007154 | French | EPUB | 511 pages | 1.3 MB

Ministre de Louis XIV, grand rival de Colbert, Louvois (1641-1691) est l’homme de confiance et le collaborateur le plus intime du Roi-Soleil. Son caractère brutal et autoritaire, son implication dans certains épisodes peu glorieux du Grand Siècle – l’affaire des Poisons, la révocation de l’édit de Nantes, le ravage du Palatinat –, nourrissent très tôt une légende noire. …
