Once you go Bach, you never go back.
A chef d'oeuvre.
French baroque normally lacks clear chordal textures and rhythm (there is a term for this) but this one seems very clear. Lovely bass voice.
Edit: brisé. Thanks Google.
Edit: referring to the term.
Matthaeus have you noticed this distinction with french baroque? At first I was lukewarm to the fractured melodies but now I love it. It must be difficult to play their repertoire efficiently without fully immersing yourself in french sauce for a good while.
Edit: as stated the above video isn't really a good example as it's quite melodic.
I think tomorrow in the van I shall listen to Dufault.
Christ, that's gorgeous. The waltz-type bass parts sound a bit like Cash's folk stuff. Just goes to show how the tradition carries on, whether the minstrel wot.

Yes, I agree that French music of that period generally lacks interesting harmony, a clear example of that being F. Couperin's harpsichord music. An exception is Rameau, who was a music theorist.
I've had his first book of harpsichord works on in the kitchen. Youtube is invaluable for stuff like this.
Edit: good suggestion.
