Froberger's keyboard works were partly lost however.
A magazine advised what to do if the complete set is a little much of
the unknown; just begin with the first set. It contains the complete
'Libro Secondo': 6 toccata's, 6 fantasias, 6 canzonas and 6 suites.
This arrangement in the original assembly gives a more proper sense of
quality and proportions than a random coupling of highlights.
