"Christo Resurgenti" for Piano & Clarinet Trio
Uploaded on Feb 4, 2013
François Couperin (1668-1733) was certainly the greatest of the French claveinists and surely one of the greatest of French composers. Musically, Francois Couperin bridged two eras, the Baroque and the Classical, to which many of his ideas look forward. He was born in Paris into a family with a musical tradition stretching back 200 years. Their church, St Gervais, employed a member of the Couperin family as organist for an unbroken period of 173 years.
Little is know about this Easter Motet "Christo Resurgenti" (Christ Rising), although originally written for voices (2 Sopranos) and Basso Continuo. I created this arrangement for Clarinet Trio (2 Bb Clarinets and Bass Clarinet) and Acoustic Piano and it is best played using the "GeneralUser GS.sf2" Soundfont by S. Christian Collins Software (http://www.schristiancollins.com/generaluser.php) and using the Clarinet soundfont from SoundFont Downloads at (http://www.soundfontdownloads.com).
