Re: Jean-Baptiste Lully - Armide, LWV 71, Passacaglia

Is this the War of Spanish Succession music topic ? :) In France, military music got developped under Louis XIV by composers like Lully, Philidor, Couperin or Charpentier. There are a lot of pieces well documented, but not so much are recorded under the Youtube. La Marche du régiment de Turenne by L...

Yes, but it's digital music and IMVHO lacks of personnality compared to the most excellent historical soundtracks we can find in other Ageod games.

Trying to improve this, I have made a mod with instrumental pieces from the TYW century.
