"Marc-Antoine Charpentier knew, or knew about, all the sitters in this imaginary portrait gallery. During my long pursuit of the composer in European archives and libraries, these same individuals have become my friends. ...I have constructed my portraits from historical evidence alone." Patricia Ranum (Preface)
