This XVIIth century master of the viol still is largely shrouded in mystery. It is thought that he added a seventh string to the instrument for greater depth. It is reported that Marais, who was his pupil, secretly hid under the treehouse where his reclusive master would play and improvise, to eavesdrop and marvel (and perhaps borrow a few ideas). Debate about who this Sieur de Sainte Colombe really was continues, but at least he finally got a real face in "Tous les Matins des Monde", the 1991 film about him, which characterised him as a grieve-stricken, impenetrable man.
The music is of great melancholy - as dark, charged and unpredictable as a distant thunder storm on an delicate summer evening.
Furthermore, if you want to demonstrate to someone what a viola da gamba (or better: two) can do, I suggest playing the first minute of this recording to make that person sit upright and marvel. At least that's what happened to me and I was hooked to the instrument ever since. -Edmond
