Composer: Couperin, Louis
Sample Producer: OrganArt Media
Sample Set: 1766 Riepp Dreifaltigkeits Organ, Ottobeuren, Germany
Software: Hauptwerk VII
Genre: Baroque
Description:
Louis Couperin, (born (1626-1661) French composer, organist, and harpsichordist, the first major member of the Couperin dynasty of musicians of the 17th and 18th centuries.

Couperin’s father, a merchant and small landowner in Chaumes-en-Brie, France, was also the organist of the local abbey church, and Louis and his two younger brothers, François and Charles learned to play respectably on the violin, viol, harpsichord, and organ.

In 1653 Louis became the first Couperin to occupy the post of organist at the Church of Saint-Gervais, situated across from Notre-Dame Cathedral.

A small surviving sample of his life’s work suggests that when he died in 1661, at only 35, the 17th century lost one of its greatest musical talents.
