The Archive service is for CDs which have been deleted and where the musical content is not otherwise available.

(If a CD is scheduled for re-issue within the next 3-4 months, the message 'To be reissued on …' will replace the 'Buy Archive CD' button.)

This service offers a production-quality CDR with printed label, inlay (tray) card and, at the minimum, a 2pp booklet (including cover artwork and complete track listing), packaged in a normal jewel case.

In many instances we will provide complete printed booklets, but please note that this is not always the case. Pricing is £13.99 per CD, regardless of the original sale price of the disc(s).

This magnificent anthology of late 17th-century French harpsichord music presents a complete autograph manuscript of Marc Roger Normand Couperin, a newly discovered member of the Couperin dynasty (he was François Couperin's cousin). He worked at the Court of Turin and was known as 'Coperino'. The manuscript contains 57 pieces, including many fine works composed or arranged by 'Coperino' himself, and beautiful works by Chambonnières, d'Anglebert, Le Bègue and Hardel, as well as the otherwise unknown La Pierre family.

All of this music is completely new to disc, as is the composer.
