    Once you go Bach, you never go back.

    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.

    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.

    Simply too good to be soiled by camcorder audio quality.

    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.

    One time in the ascent of Mankind came the sound of Fugue, wherein Man thereafter began a slow and meandering decent from the edge of the Heavens and back toward Earth's maternal bosom of naturality.

    One day in October Bach walked from Arnstadt to st Mary's church in Lubeck to see and hear organist Dietrich Buxtehude. Then walked back. It was a 500 mile roundtrip.

    Edit: he was gone for four months.

    Reminds me of McGonagall walking from Dundee to Balmoral to ask Queen Victoria for royal patronage.

    That's reminded me of a nice passage I read in Cicero's Pro Cn. Plancio yesterday, and which I thought I should take a note of. It's somewhat related because it's about self-delusion or lack thereof in one's ability with words.

    quaeris num disertus sit. immo, id quod secundum est, ne sibi quidem videtur.

    I agree totally, Bach was creative as hell, I'm not an expert on music and some might get angry at what I'm saying here, but Mozart was lesser than Bach, well they might have composed in different ways, but at least in musicality I prefer Bach. I believe the Brandeburg Concert n. 3 is one of the most famous pieces of his work.

    From this channel on youtube 'gerubach' I got BWV 1053 to 1058, beautiful pieces of music where we can hear the imponent sound of the harpsichord, which I prefer to the modern piano...
