by Jacques Gaultier (c.1595-1660)

The Courante by Jacques Gaultier is a fine example of this delicate dance form with its characteristic ‘broken style’ variations. Jacques was a more colorful representative of the famous Gaultier family, who produced at least four famous lutenists, and he spent most of his life as an exile in England, apparently on the lam from a murder rap. Our recording of this piece is, to our knowledge, the first.
