This CD of sensuous, Baroque tunes is the perfect, romantic gift. Beautifully played by Victoria Paterson and Robert Burkhart, this gorgeous collection of Violin & Cello Duos goes perfectly with flowers, a box of chocolates, or a gourmet dinner with candles and wine. Includes the famous Pachelbel's Canon, Bach's Air, Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring & more... The title track, Le Petit Mort, translates from the French language as "The Little Death". This long lost work is attributed to one of the first, great female composers, Elisabeth-Claude Jacquet de la Guerre. The legend goes that before her husband passed away in 1704, she wrote this work as a gift for her secret lover who longed for her while her husband was still alive, but dared not reveal himself. This piece was a secret message to her lover that if he waited, he would experience Le Petit Mort.
