The baroque spirit in all its musical shapes. Jean Gilles and François Couperin, both were born 350 years ago.

 

Jean Gilles was very famous because of his masterpiece, the Requiem Messe des Morts. François Couperin ‘Le Grand’ was the most important member of the musical family Couperin. He contributed to La Grande Manière, composed for a gamba consort and was regarded in his time as the best composer for harpsichord and organ.
