Le Roi Louis" - "King Louis" - is a song praising the bravery and determination of King St. Louis IX of France as he prepares to lead the 7th Crusade. King Louis summons his wavering barons. As each noble presents his objection, the wise King turns their excuses on their heads. Then, followed by his faithful men, St. Louis departs for distant Egypt. Le Roi Louis is sung by Chœur de la Joyeuse Garde, a French group of soldiers and scouts dedicated to the preservation and dissemination of historic songs.
