The many assets of the organ of the Royal Chapel - majestic in every way! - are enhanced by a virtuoso organist and a selection of Baroque masterpieces.


Johann Sebastian Bach, Louis-Nicolas Clérambault, François Couperin, Louis Couperin, Louis-Claude Daquin

Ton Koopman, great Dutch organist and harpsichordist sublimating the baroque scene for five decades, here delivers us an overview of the Great Organ (Robert Cliquot/ Julien Tribuot, 1710) of the Royal Chapel of Versailles, inaugurating our collection “L'Âge d'Or de l'Orgue Français” (the Golden Age of French Organ) . Anthology of the possibilities of this purely “French style” instrument, here are the two great Suites of Clérambaut, published the same year as the inauguration of the instrument, majestic pieces of Louis and François Couperin, masters of colors, of Daquin’s Christmas Music full of sap, and even a Bach Choral ! A Master Organist makes a resounding tribute to the symbolic instrument wanted for his Chapel by Louis XIV.

Recorded on May 2019 at the Royal Chapel of Versailles.

Booklet in French, English, German - Duration: 57'49
