Tune of the Day: Récit de Nazard by Clérambault
from the “Organ suite of the second tone”
This G-minor piece, originally written as part of the Suite du deuxième ton (“Suite of the second tone”) for solo organ, was composed by French Baroque musician Louis-Nicolas Clérambault around 1710. The term nazard refers to an organ stop, whose name probably comes from the nasal character it imparts.
Thanks to Marcello from Italy for suggesting this piece!
