Works by CorretteF. Couperin and Marais

Under the French Regime in New France, the works of the greatest French composers were performed at the residence of the colony’s Intendant, Claude-Thomas Dupuy. An educated
music-lover, Dupuy governed from 1726 to 1728, and it is reported that he performed music by Marin Marais and François Couperin during evening entertainments. Wind back the clock to New France and the sound of the viola da gamba and harpsichord with these two exceptional musicians!
