MAKING OF THE MUSIC FOR TEXAS BEFORE THE
Bill Millet and Louis-Marie Fardet incorporated Live Baroque Music Performances into the Film that were part
of the acting scenes and the soundtrack. Although no one is sure if Robert La Salle - the vaunted French explorer -
was musical, his performances on the Baroque Cello in the Film could have been truly accurate, regarding the Degree of Culture,
Fashion and Taste that Louis XIV, the "Sun King" had an obsession with conveying as his instrument to "cultureize"
the New World. Via his intentional manipulation of La Salle, King Louis XIV and the French Culture he represented was
to shine before the whole World in "Texas Before The Alamo".
