Marc Antoine Charpentier was a French composer of the Baroque era. Exceptionally prolific and versatile, he produced compositions of the highest quality in several genres. His mastery in writing sacred vocal music, above all, was recognized and hailed by his contemporaries. He was unrelated to Gustave Charpentier, the late-nineteenth and early-twentieth French opera composer.
