Born 350 years ago this year, François Couperin (1668–1733) is the musician of intimacy. Couperin was first and foremost an organist, and his earliest published works consisted of two organ masses, “one for ordinary parish use, the other proper for convents.” Published in 1690, this collection crowned Couperin as one of the greatest masters of the French organ and had a considerable influence on Bach.
