Te Deum, Prelude (Marche en Rondeau) (cello duo)
Title: Te Deum, Prelude (Marche en Rondeau)
Composer: Marc-Antoine Charpentier, arr. David Gable
Instrumentation: Cello 1; Cello 2
Printout: 2 pages
Note: This bright march opens Charpentier’s most celebrated motet, the D Major Te Deum. It is ideal music for wedding processionals or recessionals. Although the Te Deum is a Christian motet, the Prelude is without text, and is therefore appropriate for ceremonies of any religious persuasion.
