Customer Review from amazon:
There have been few complete traversals of François Couperin's work for the harpsichord, and likely none better than that by Christophe Rousset. It's a crying shame that these recordings are no longer in print, and that available copies are both extremely rare and very expensive. But I finally bit the bullet and forked out what was asked for the complete set and have no complaints for having done so. The many, many little jewels that make up the four books and 27 Ordres (not 'suites'!), with only a handful identified as dances, are the high-water mark of French Baroque keyboard writing. Along with the Four Books of pieces for the clavecin, the set also includes L'Art de toucher le clavecin (made up of 8 preludes and an Allemande), the four Concerts Royaux, and an extra Sicilienne, all making up 11 well-filled discs. The twelfth disc is a "free bonus disc" and includes the work for 2 harpsichords, including L'Apothéose de Lulli, La Paix du Parnasse, and L'Apothéose de Corelli, as well as several further dance movements. And the second harpsichordist is none other than William Christie. All in all, if you enjoy Baroque harpsichord music, French harpsichord music, or the artistry of Rousset and Christie, this set can't be beat.

Thanks a lot Valechek, they're impossible to find! A landmark in classical music, only the connoisseurs have enough gusto to love it – same thing for French organ music of the Grand Siècle.
