This practice continues in the 18th century but in a lighter vein. In the same way that dance forms can take on the characteristics of pieces of an object, a place, a landscape or a character, these new homages do not wait for death any more. Rameau, Couperin or Forqueray, while still alive, celebrate each other musically, as much with a friendly tenderness as sincere admiration.
