By Pierre du Mage
Edited by Jon Baxendale

SKU: LBMP 018 Category:


A new edition of Pierre Du Mage’s only publication, Premier livre d’orgue contenant une suite du premier ton. Published in 1708, Du Mage’s short suite of organ pieces proves him to be one of the most erudite of Grand siècle composers. The preface examines the music and aspects of performance style such as ornamentation, registration and notes inégales. Two versions of the music are provided. The first employs modern conventions, while the second retains all aspects of the original imprint (including clefs) to allow for a deeper connexion with the music and its composer.
