Couperin, Les Barricades Mysterieuses

There is nothing one can say about the horror of the shootings in Connecticut.  Here, instead, is one of the most beautiful pieces of music I know, Les Barricades Mysterieuses, by the seventeenth century master Francois Couperin (le Grand), patriarch of seven brilliant Couperins who successively filled the organmaster position at the church of Saint-Gervais in Paris, to express something noble and good about the human spirit.
