Le Mouton fabuleuxMost of Charles Mouton's compositions are contained in two volumes printed in Paris around 1679 and a manuscript now in Prague, belonging to the extraordinary Lobkovitz family collection. It is almost certain that Mouton's published works actually filled four books, a fact indicated by the publishing business of Etienne Roger, which provides records of three books attributed to Mouton published in 1707 and a fourth book published before 1712: however, no trace of the last two remains today. It is not unlikely that most of the repertoire in the two missing collections is preserved in the Lobkovitz collection manuscript, believed to be in Mouton's own hand. As well as containing pièces by the Parisian lutanist, it also offers an interesting collection of works by Denis and Ennemod Gaultier, often with a double written by Mouton himself. Another extremely important item in the Prague collection is a copy of the second printed volume, printed only up to page 33 and completed by hand, probably by Mouton himself, with two new pieces and compositions which had already appeared in print but presented here under different titles. So there are grounds for maintaining that there were close contacts between the Lobkowitz family and our lutanist, perhaps through the young Philipp Lobkowitz (1680-1735) to whom the volume belonged. Most of the pieces included in this recording, freely grouped together as a sequence of pièces in the same key, are from the manuscript sources, although some are from the printed volumes, and I hope that they provide a fitting representation of Charles Mouton's extraordinary achievements as a composer.
