Gaspard Corrette (1670 - 1730)

Composer and organist Gaspard Corrette (1670-died before 1733) was a native of Delft who settled in Rouen. He was the father of Michel Corrette, whose chant-based versets became the basis of a French improvisatory idiom in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Corrette's Missa Octavitoni is generally believed to be the last organ setting of the mass in France. After that the great school of seventeenth-century organ composers came to an end. Published in Paris in 1703, the Mass is subtitled à l'usage des Dames Religieuses et utile à ceux qui touchent l'orgue (for use in nunneries and useful for all who play the organ) and contains an insightful preface on performance practice. It consists of the customary movements for the four parts of the Ordinary, with Graduels, an Offerte, and two Élevations and is given a complete presentation in 8.553214.
