Le coucou
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Louis-Claude Daquin was a harpsichordist and regarded as the finest organist of his time in France. His compositions scarcely match such a reputation, but Le Coucou, from his Book of Harpsichord Pieces of 1735, has a naive simplicity and directness which has ensured its survival.
