Josse-François-Joseph Benaut (Gullegem, 1743 - Paris, 1794) was a Flemish composer, organist and priest who had a career in France. His father Charles Benaut was an organist in Wulveringen in Flanders. Josse-François-Joseph Benaut set himself up in Paris as a harpsichord tutor and in 1771 married the daughter of a Flemish merchant. He was guillotined during the French Revolution on what is now the Place de la Nation, Paris as he was suspected of being in contact with the rebels of the Vendée.

I recorded the last part of the Benaut's Hymne en La Mineur (1776), which consists of six parts. It's an exciting Grand Jeu in which I could show the French sounds of the Metzler organ of Poblet, mixed with the Spanish chamade Trompeta. To achieve a maximum effect in this (test) surround sample set I put the front channels on 0%, the rear channels on 100% and the detuning of the flues and reeds also to the max (within the limits of the sample set of course).
