About

Ton Koopman, great Dutch organist and harpsichordist sublimating the baroque scene for five decades, here delivers us an overview of the Great Organ (Robert Cliquot/Julien Tribuot, 1710) of the Royal Chapel of Versailles, inaugurating our collection “L’Âge d’Or de l’Orgue Français” (The Golden Age of French Organ). An anthology of the possibilities of this purely “French style” instrument, here are the two great Suites by Clérambault, published the same year as the inauguration of the instrument, majestic pieces by Louis and François Couperin, masters of colours, Daquin’s Christmas music full of sap, and even a Bach chorale! A master organist makes a resounding tribute to the symbolic instrument wanted for his Chapel by Louis XIV.
