As magnificent as I remember from childhood
This recording is about as inauthentic as you can get by today's standards for baroque music: thundering timpani and blaring brass backed by a great organ that growls and roars underneath it all. It gripped me as a child like no other and launched a lifetime love of the French baroque. Here is the court of the Sun King of my fantasies; you will never convince me otherwise.
