If you want to get in the mood to study the Peace of Westphalia, there is nothing better than some period music. I have listed a couple of albums on my a/v page, and I came across another one recently that I forgot I had: “Un Concert Pour Mazarin.” It consists of Italian music allegedly brought to France by Mazarin, and it is certainly beautiful Baroque music.
I also discovered that YouTube has videos with some authentic popular songs from the Thirty Years’ War, notable the “Tillylied.” I’ll be honest, it sounds kind of frightening.
