Item description for Figured Bass Accompaniment in France (Speculum Musicae, 6) by Robert Zappulla...

This comprehensive study of French basse continue practice supplements an already sizeable body of literature on thoroughbass accompaniment, the emphasis of which has clearly been on Italian and German theoretical works. The numerous French accompaniment treatises written during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries seem to have been, with only a few choice exceptions, unjustifiably dismissed by many modern scholars as little more than harmonic tutors, and the discipline of musicology - particularly as it relates to historical performance practice - has definitely suffered as a result. These works certainly do not deserve such a fate, for they provide not only unique documentation of French harmonic theory as it evolved over the course of more than a century, but a wealth of important information regarding seventeenth- and eighteenth-century French performance practice as well. It is the aim of this study to give as full an accounting as possible of basse continue performance as it is documented in the numerous seventeenth- and eighteenth-century treatises produced in France, beginning with Nicolas Fleury's 'Mthode pour apprendre facilement toucher le thorbe sur la basse-contine'(1660) and continuing through Pierre-Joseph Roussier's Trait des accords, et de leur succession [...] (1764) and his 'L'harmonie pratique, ou exemples pour le Trait des accords' (1775). The issues dealt with in the treatises are treated systematically, and provide the framework for the entire study.
