KINGS OVER THE WATER - In the steps of the exiled Stuarts

"An interesting and enterprising CD"
Classical Music on the Web
, November 2001. more reviews

The programme follows, and reflects, the musical interests of James II and his queen, Mary of Modena, and their son James III, the Old Pretender, from Saint-Germain-en-Laye through Lorraine and Urbino to Rome. It includes music written and copied for the court at Saint-Germain by Fede, A. Scarlatti, Desmarets and Lully, arias copied for the court at Urbino and an aria from Bonnie Prince Charlie's own score of Feo's Andromaca. It also includes traditional songs and dances, among them 'James II's March' and 'The King shall enjoy his own again', two of the most powerful political symbols of the English Jacobites.
