Boutmy was organist at the Court Chapel, Brussels. His harpsichord suites are very fine.

Alessandro Scarlatti was famous for his operas and cantatas but these toccatas show virtuosity, brilliance and melody.

Pasquini was his contemporary and an excellent harpsichordist; his music is well worth investigating.

The Warsaw Tablature is mainly anonymous; the one named piece is by Joseph Podbielsky (c1680).
