en Limba Engleză Carte Paperback – March 2000

In 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?

Recenzii

"The best thing from Denmark since Hamlet." John Julius Norwich "A magnificent novel... a brilliant book which will repay many readings" The Times "She is 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 of art" -- A. N. Wilson "Tremain's achievement in Music & Silence is extraordinary ... A narrative as funny as it is compelling" Daily Telegraph "Tremain weaves her web of stories with great visual flair and emotional acuity: This is a fabulous cacophony of passion and despair" Metro
