The Jean-Baptiste Lully Collection

Jean-Baptiste Lully was the most noted French composer of the 17th century and the inventor of the French operatic tradition. Born in Florence, Lully moved to France at the age of 14 and, at the age of 21, was appointed to the position of "composer of instrumental music for the king" for the court of Louis XIV. The University of North Texas Music Library has digitized 23 17th- and 18th-century scores of operas and ballets by Lully and his sons, and placed them online for public perusal. Here, visitors can look over the scores for works ranging from his 1684 opera _Amadis_ to his _Le Triomphe de l'Amour_. There is also a great deal of background material located on the site, including an extended bibliography, discography, and essays on French music printing techniques in the 17th century.
