How can one account better than Rousseau himself of all that Monsieur de Sainte-Colombe has brought to the viola da gamba, whether it be at the instrumental level (adding the 7th string that gives more depth to the sonority, The silver-plated strings that allow articulated and precise play even on the bass strings), but also an important development of the technique which gives the instrument a palette of sound of a finesse and a sensibility approaching the human voice . It is thanks to these decisive contributions that a school of viola da gamba was able to develop in France, Marais, Couperin and Forqueray being the most prestigious representatives. It seems important to me to pay tribute to this musician of the shadow of whom we are all still the heirs, as his son but also Marin Marais did in their time by dedicating to him two magnificent tombs.
