The vivacious Palladian Ensemble pay a musical tribute to the courts and music of Louis XIV, also known, of course, as the Sun King. And a paradise it definitely is with repertoire from the lesser known Marin Marais and Jean-Fery Rebel and the French Baroque favourite, Couperin.

The Sun King's Paradise was named The Observer's 'Classical CD of the Week' and was awarded the Diapason d'Or.
