“Francois Couperin’s contribution to the literature of baroque keyboard music has long been recognized. Francois Couperin and ‘The Perfection of Music’ updates and expands upon David Tunley’s valuable 1982 BBC Music Guide to the composer, and examines the whole of Couperin’s output including the organ masses, motets and chamber music, in addition to the well-known works for harpsichord. Taking as its focal point Couperin’s concept of the perfection of music through the union of the French and Italian styles, this book takes a more analytical approach to Couperin’s work.”—From Amazon
