Le Tombeau has been called "a jewel of classic form and expression turned inward on itself; a memorial of sublimated grief… of fallen friends finding concealment under a protective arch of artistry." Its delicate nature is the perfect choice for this ensemble setting. Here, the guitar adds a poignant voice and shading of its own; its peculiarly plucked quality serving as a continuo part for a composer fascinated by the infinite possibilities of instrumental color.
