Jean-Baptiste Lully

I see that Jean-Baptiste Lully died today, March 22, in 1687. If you have never heard a French baroque opera, you owe it to yourself to do so, and I just happen to have a recommendation: Lully's Atys, as performed by William Christie and his group Les Arts Florissants. Simply magnificent.
