The Book

Presentation

For Couperin’s Leçons de Ténèbres – one of the most famous of all eighteenth-century French sacred works, frequently recorded and performed in concert – there was hitherto no edition that was both practical and reliable, with an introduction, a translation of the sung text, performance material, and above all a historically informed realisation of the continuo.
The CMBV decided therefore to present a new edition of the Leçons, divided into two volumes.


  • The first one, where your are, contains the original score, two separate parts (figured bass and non-figured bass) and an edition of Couperin’s Principes d’accompagnement, intended for continuo players.

  • The second one contains a score for voice and keyboard, with a new realisation of the continuo aiming to respect the principles set forth by Couperin in the abovementioned work and, more generally, to be in keeping with early eighteenth-century treatises on the subject.


Both volumes contain an introduction in French and English, and the original Latin text is given with French and English translations.

Forces required: dessus 1 and 2 (sopranos) – 1 keyboard instrument (harpsichord or organ) – 1 basse d’archet ad lib. (bass viol or cello).
