In 1685, De Machy published his Pièces de Violle, the first and only one of its kind for unaccompanied viol in France. De Machy’s contribution may have been a modest start, a book of suites of dances, but his publication went on to spark a ‘quarrel’ between the other violists of the time about musical style, technique and composition for the instrument. The victors of this dramatic exchange would go on to shape later music practices in France.
