The Queen's Music

Songs from the time of Marie Antoinette

Marie Antoinette is perhaps best known for something she didn’t say. ‘Let them eat cake’ may have been erroneously attributed to this tragic last Queen of France but the lesser known truth is that she loved to play the harp and compose music.


Only two examples survive of this spine chillingly beautiful music, written for voice and harp. Hearing her words and listening to her music is a rare treat indeed, but there is an opportunity coming up on Sunday June 30th and Sunday July 14th .
