Episode 3

Today Donald Macleod pays a visit to the Grande Écurie, home of the King's horses and the musicians of the Grande Écurie. There was no permanent theatre at the Palace, so the stables also played host to several spectacular theatrical shows. The musicians had to play at outdoors events but were also required to play during the King's supper and for big celebrations in the Royal Chapel. With Hervé Niquet and Olivier Baumont.
