I'm studying (a bit alone...) harmonic analysis. For example I'm studiying the piece named
"La Lugubre - Sarabande" of F. Couperin.
Here, p.65 of the PDF (p.52 of the book) you can find the sheet music.

Here is a recording : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r3Q9DUEE ... r_embedded.
I want to analyse (bar after bar) the chord changes, harmonic progressions, cadence, etc.
This piece ("morceau" en français = piece ?) has only 2 "flat" ( b ) but seems to be in Cminor.
(which should have 3 "flat") : it begins and ends with C minor chord, and in a book of harmonic
analysis, it says : C minor.
But I don't understand : I see :
1 I C minor
2 V of IV C 7
3 IV Major (in Cminor the fourth degree must be Minor ! except if it is
in dorian mode, I think it's not the case here)
So I don't understand !
Thanks in advance for helping me to analyse such a piece!
