Gaspard Corrette

(ca 1671 - before 1733)

French composer and organist. He was born around 1671, probably in Rouen, where he was organist for the church of St-Herbland. In approximately 1720 he moved to Paris. The exact date of his death is not known. His son, Michel Corrette, also was a musician, composer, violinist, harpsichordist and organist. The only surviving work by Corrette is an organ mass in the eighth Church Mode: Messe du 8e Ton pour lĠOrgue ˆ lĠUsage des Dames Religieuses, et utile ˆ ceux qui touchent lĠorgue., published in 1703. The mass consists of 24 pieces, all in G major, except for the Elevation which is in D minor.
