Les Arts Florissants, one of the world's most respected early music groups and currently the Baroque musical ensemble-in-residence at the Theatre de Caen in Caen, France, presents a program of late 17th-century French airs. Love, loss, and licentiousness are some of the earthly themes explored in these works, originally performed in the court of Louis XIV.
