Louis-Claude Daquin was considered a musical prodigy. After a few harpsichord lessons with his godmother, Élisabeth Jacquet de La Guerre, he was able to perform for Louis XIV at the age of six. Louis Marchand became his organ teacher. He received composition lessons from Nicolas Bernier, and at only eight years of age he conducted the performance of his own motet Beatus Vir for large choir and orchestra at the Sainte-Chapelle. At twelve, he turned down the post of organist at the Sainte-Chapelle and instead accepted the same offer at the monastery of Le Petit Saint-Antoine. In 1727 he became organist at the parish church of Saint-Paul, receiving preference over Jean-Philippe Rameau. Five years later he became organist at the Cordeliers, and in 1739 succeeded Jean-François Dandrieu, organist at the Chapelle Royale. After the death of Antoine Calvière, he succeeded him as organist of Notre Dame de Paris Cathedral in 1755. In addition to these important organist posts, he appeared several times between 1749 and 1754 in concerts at the Concert spirituel.
Daquin was considered an outstanding organ improviser of his generation.
Guys, I like this Daquin very much ^^
