In he acquired the younger D'Anglebert's position as harpsichordist at Versailles. Couperin divided his time between Paris and Versailles. He soon acquired heavy commitments to teach the harpsichord and organ which made it difficult to find time for the publication of his vocal and instrumental chamber music.

Instead he turned his attention to the import of the Italian sonatas and cantatas being performed in private concerts during the s; his own trio and quartet sonades in the Corellian style - some of which were absorbed into his collection Les nations - were initially circulated in manuscripts under an anagram of his name.

In his publications of the early s he offered a wide variety of ways in which the French and Italian styles might be united. In the Concerts royaux for one to three players were appended to the third book of harpsichord ordres.

    Couperin’s four inventive trio sonatas and suites entitled Les nations (published Paris, ) were composed over a period of about 35 years.
