Le Manuscript Caumont Orgue


Edited by Jon Baxendale

SKU: LBMP 019 Category:


A new and exciting discovery of a previously unknown manuscript in a private French collection. Le Manuscrit Caumont Orgue contains 111 pieces in Tones V and VI of which only 28 are known in other collections. The unknown music includes work by Nicolas Lebègue and Jacques-Denis Thomelin and 80 anonymous pieces which are undoubtedly by the composer Jacques Boyvin. This manuscript is so important that we have published it in two editions, one English and one French. Its preface discusses the manuscript and its contents at length, discusses Jacques Boyvin’s writings on performance and registration, and discusses other aspects of performance style.
