Charpentier and Rome

Irrefutable proof that Charpentier went to Rome and studied with Carissimi

Rome: Charpentier as a Rome-trained rhetorician, per the Journal de Trévoux

Rome and the Jesuits: can we believe that Charpentier actually met Carissimi?

Rome: several hypotheses about how Charpentier got there and whom he met there (among them was Dassoucy!)

Rome: a 10-part biography of Jacques Dalibert, the Paris-born “bon François” in the service of Queen Christina of Sweden

And for imagery that may be connected to Charpentier's stay in Rome, see my Musing on St. Cecilia.
