Description

'The best thing from Denmark since Hamlet.' John Julius NorwichIn the year 1629, a young English lutenist named Peter Claire arrives at the Danish Court to join King Christian IV's Royal Orchestra.

From the moment when he realises that the musicians perform in a freezing cellar underneath the royal apartments, Peter Claire understands that he's come to a place where the opposing states of light and dark, good and evil, are waging war to the death. Designated the King's 'Angel' because of his good looks, he finds himself falling in love with the young woman who is the companion of the King's adulterous and estranged wife, Kirsten. With his loyalties fatally divided between duty and passion, how can Peter Claire find the path that will realise his hopes and save his soul?'The best historical novelist of her generation.

She evokes the past with sensuality, wit and superb sleights of hand...

The plot is ingenious...an unforgettable tapestry of Eros and art.' A.

N. Wilson
