Surprising, Excellent

I was browsing Couperin, not sure what I'd find, expecting mostly solo harpsichord works (which was in fact the case), and came across this gem. I love solo pipe organ but was unfamiliar with any Couperin works, so found this recording an extremely pleasant surprise. It's a bargain price-wise and includes 42 separate brief works clearly written as part of a liturgy. The brevity of the pieces is also their strength - the composer got to the melodic point very quickly. The musical style really caught me - there's an almost modal quality to the music that makes it very attention-grabbing. The quality of the recording probably isn't high from a technical standpoint - but the muddy, atmospheric quality bring out the modal quality and it's easy to imagine yourself sitting in the cloister of a cathedral in the late 1700s hearing this music. The pipe organ is definitely an acquired taste but if you're looking for an unusual and engaging alternative to the typical Bach, give this one a go.
