Tune of the Day: Prélude from Te Deum

by M.A. Charpentier, arranged for flute choir

This prelude, or marche en rondeau, serves as an instrumental introduction to the grand polyphonic motet Te Deum, which French Baroque composer Marc-Antoine Charpentier wrote (probably) between 1688 and 1698.

Many thanks go to Steve Thorne for contributing this arrangement for flute choir (3 concert flutes, alto flute, and bass flute)!
