|OY554 Te Deum:
Te Deum "Prelude"
(Eurovision Theme) was composed by Marc-Antoine Charpentier (1643 -1704).
Charpentier composed his grand polyphonic motet Te Deum (H. 146) in D major probably between 1688 and 1698, during his stay at the Jesuit Church of Saint-Louis in Paris, where he held the position of musical director. The work was written for the group of soloists, choir, and instrumental accompaniment.
Te Deum was the Eurovision Theme and one video public comment amusingly said: "The only actual piece of music in the entire show."
