Latitude 37 – Let Them Eat Cake

Frolic in the gardens of Versailles with the crème de la crème of 18th century French aristocracy to music written for the dainty musette, a tiny bagpipe made from ivory and ebony, clad in plush velvet, and gilded froufrou – an instrument that said “let them eat cake” like no other.
