Abstract:

"In this new study, Kate van Orden examines noble education in the arts to show how music contributed to cultural and social transformation in early modern France. She constructs a fresh account of music's importance in promoting the absolutism that the French monarchy would fully embrace under Louis XIV, based on many hitherto unknown court ballets and royal ceremonies." "This book is a history of the development of musical spheres and how they brought forth new cultural priorities of civility, military discipline, and political harmony. Music, Discipline, and Arms in Early Modern France effectively illustrates the seminal role music played in mediating between the cultures of letters and arms."--Jacket.
