He replaced the recitativo secco style favoured by the Italians with an accompanied recitative noted for its great rhythmic freedom and careful word setting. He developed a style of declamation that was well-suited to the French language; this innovation led to a lessening of the demarcation between the recitative and the aria , so that French opera acquired much more continuity.

The arias themselves, however, retain many Italian characteristics. His operas frequently end with a chaconne movement, and in this he was followed by both Jean-Philippe Rameau and Christoph Gluck.

Armide, opera, LWV 71

After a rift in between Lully and Moliere over the ownership of the Academie, Lully and Quinault had collaborated on a tragedie-lyrique each year. They took as their model the ancient classical tragedy, and turned these tragedies into successful operas by wedding them to existing French genres. Lully invented a new art form to aid this marriage; a type of declamatory recitative that came as close to tragic recitation as possible. He wrote the recitatif with changing meters and speech rhythms that helped the actors and actresses dramatize their roles. Quinault provided poetic libretti that was plastic enough, and Lully made sure that the music that he wrote left the dramatic recitation in relief. Much of the libretto of Armide is taken right out of the Tasso original, but Quinault, as usual, supplied Lully with a happy resolution of classical demands and baroque sumptuousness. The many diversions and magical scenes are woven right into the plot.
