Notes

This piece, which is about ten minutes long, is made up of many short sections which have ‘Couperinesque’ titles, and share something of the spirit of Couperin’s music. In a number of places these fragments are linked by short passages from the Couperin ordres. The music moves seamlessly between the different styles, and passes through a wide range of moods and textures. The final bars of the piece are taken from the opening of a harpsichord piece Graham wrote a number of years ago, Pastorale, which in itself was a response to the idea of the unmeasured prelude.
