This critically acclaimed edition of Couperin’s Pièces d’orgue marks the first publication since Kenneth Gilbert and Davitt Moroney’s 1979 edition for Oiseau-lyre. The volume has been critically applauded by,
among others, John Kitchen (Early Music Performer), David Hansel (Early Music Review) and David Ponsford (Royal College of Organists). The edition contains an extensive preface in English and French that examines
the provenance of the masses, existing contemporary manuscripts, registration, and performance practice. In addition, suitable plainsong has been provided for each mass, along with an appendix containing the
mass propers, allowing for the music’s performance within a liturgical setting.
"This new critical edition, complete with an erudite and extensive preface, given in both English and French, is welcome … The standard of editorial work throughout is exemplary, including extensive critical notes … [and] notes on performance style and ornamentation are excellent."
– Early Music Performer
"We now have a newly-authoritative edition … underpinned by editorial knowledge, skill and sheer love … I honestly think that this is the publication that those who play the French Baroque organ repertoire have been needing for decades."
– Early Music Review
"Baxendale’s fine edition offers a great deal of relevant information, with a pertinent bibliography, all of which will prove extremely helpful to both performers and scholars."
– Journal of The Royal College of Organists
