The smooth and majestic sound of our sumptuously-decorated French Double is just the thing for continuo in French opera, but the instrument has also featured in solo Sydney recitals by artists as diverse as Christophe Rousset or Mahan Esfahani. A forthcoming cutting-edge complete digital edition of Jean-Benjamin de Laborde’s long-forgotten illustrated songbook Choix de Chansons (1773) is an ARC Discovery Project, correlating eighteenth-century images, music, and text.
