Donald Macleod focuses on Delalande and Marais's varied interests in their final years.

Donald Macleod concludes this week's series with a look at Marais and Delalande's varied interests in their final years. Once his days of royal patronage were over Marais returned to Paris, moving eventually to the area in which he'd been born. There he tended his garden, played backgammon, gave concerts and promoted the sales of his published music. Blessed with several generous pensions, Delalande lived very comfortably, revising his church music while gradually relinquishing his royal duties to a younger generation of musicians.
