Spoken voice, harpsichord and ensemble, c.10'15.  Composed 1974.

The spoken words are taken from Francois Couperin’s L’Art de toucher Le Clavecin, a manual on harpsichord playing which Couperin wrote in 1716. In it he covers very completely all matters of style and technique, from which a few sentences have been chosen as a starting point for this composition, which is a homage to French music of all periods.

Part of the recent collection of 38 pieces for Flying West (Wirr 066) - all recorded by Thoroughbass on a double CD available online
