Old Music from France
Journey hundreds of years back in this episode of Sounds from the Sanctuary to the Baroque era of France, and listen to the glorious music of that special time period. Our host and Cathedral Organist David Ball guides us into this sonic experience with a curated playlist of famous recordings of French Baroque music including some tracks played twice, first on a modern instrument and then on a historic, French instrument, for the listener to compare what we typically hear as an organ sound to the sound world of seventeenth century France. The program concludes with one of the most beautiful orchestral works – Ravel’s own tribute to the French Baroque tradition – his Tombeau de Couperin.
