Description

Louis Couperin (1626 – 1661), Le Tombeau de Mr. Blancrocher.
Edited & Arranged by Michael Lorimer.
8 Pages.

When the famous French lutenist Blancrocher met an untimely death in 1652,  a series of Tombeaux were composed in his memory by fellow musicians:  Froberger,  Dufaut,  Denis Gautier and by Louis Couperin.  The Tombeau is a slow elegaic but elegant work demonstrating the affection felt for their departed friend and colleague.  Michael Lorimer’s transcription is a masterful arrangement showing due deference to baroque performing practices.
