Recommended Music

Jean-Henri D'Anglebert. Oeuvres pour clavier. Edited by Kenneth Gilbert. Heugel, Le Pupitre.

Review by Kenneth Gilbert of the 1999 Fuzeau facsimile in JSCM 6.2. Fuzeau printed odd numbered pages on the right, although they were originally on the left, making for inconvenient page turns. They also failed to include an index. Gilbert concludes that the edition should be withdrawn and reprinted with odd pages on the left and an index added.
