Title: Coronation Music for Charles II
Label: Accent Records
Product Type: COMPACT DISCS

The coronation of Charles II was a glorious celebration of the restoration of the monarchy following a coup d'ètat, civil war and an eleven-year government of the Commonwealth under Oliver Cromwell. Although contemporary statements concerning the music that was played are imprecise, Wim Becu and the ensemble Oltremontano have created this fascinating reconstruction of the ceremony, which portrays the King's arrival, his coronation in Westminster Abbey, the ensuing royal banquet and the royal masques that followed.
