Practice the above Grand Plein Jeu (p. 5-6) by Louis-Nicolas Clerambault from his Suite du Premier Ton.
Take a slow tempo, aim for detached articulate legato touch and 3 correct repetitions in a row. Always start the ornaments on the beat. Un-crossed mordents are played starting from the upper note (upper-main-upper-main) and crossed mordents - from the main note (main-lower-main).
Post time and the number of repetitions to comments.
