The 2011 Library Book Sale CD Trove I

A new series of CD finds from the Friends of the Multnomah County Library Annual Booksale.

François Couperin: Messe à l'usage des Paroisses

Michel Chapuis, organ

I don't really know much about the French Baroque composer François Couperin, so I included this in my stack of thirteen Book Sale CDs with the idea of getting to know a new composer. When I was showing the stack to Mrs.5000, she said "But isn't that organ music?"

"Oh crap," I said.

Five seconds of playing time confirmed that this is, indeed, organ music. In fact it's apparently considered something of a landmark organ piece.

Yeah, we don't do organ music.

Decision: Discard.  This CD is available for the asking.

You don't do organ music?

What's wrong with organs? My heavens but you classical music buffs are weird. I suppose you'd rather listen to a bunch of violins.

I bet you'd like the music my organ makes.
