With the Organ book of Clérambault (1676 † 1749) the French organ moves away from the great style of king Louis XIV's time and tackles the pleasant period of the Régence and of king Louis XV. Clérambault expanded his melodical abilities in his beautiful cantatas and works for violin, and his unique Organ book (as his unique Harpsichord book), written at the beginning of his brilliant carreer, already attests his tremendous skill.
Two original printings of Clérambault’s book had been issued, which show some differences. This edition brings them out, and also the question of split stops which Clérambault talks about in his foreword. It also restores some elements lacking in other editions, as the numerous ‘coulés de tierce’ and the signs for special ‘arpègements’.
