Jacquet De La Guerre - Collected Works

Broude Brothers Limited

Elisabeth-Claude Jacquet de La Guerre (1665-1729), praised by the Mercure galant as "la marveille de notre siecle", was among ths most prominent musical figures in the France of Louis XIV. Born into the Jacquet family of noted musicians and instrument makers, Elisabeth was a child prodigy and performed at court when she was only five years old. In 1684 she married into another important musical family when she became the wife of Parisian organist Martin de La Guerre. For most of her life Elisabeth was active as a composer and a performer. Her extant works include vocal music both sacred and secular, music for keyboard and for string instruments, and dramatic works.

Although La Guerre certainly ranks among the most prominent women in the history of Western music, only some of her works have been published in modern editions, and those in publications of varying editorial approach and quality. The present undertaking is intended to make all of La Guerre's extant compositions accessible in modern editions prepared according to a consistent editorial policy.

In The Collected Works, the editon of each of Jacquet de La Guerre's works is based on collation of all early sources, including collation of multiple copies of each printed source. The Collected Works attempts a practical compromise between preserving the conventions of the original notation and rendering the edition convenient for modern users; thus clefs have been modernized, but key signatures, time signatures, and indications of ornaments, tempi, and dynamics are those of the original, as are the spelling and punctuation of underlaid text in vocal and dramatic works. The four sonatas for two violins and basse continue preserved in two different manuscript sources are presented in both of the versions that have come down to us.

The edition will consist of six clothbound volumes in large format. Performing materials based on the texts of the critical edition will be published for the keyboard works, the chamber works, and selected cantatas.
