JEAN-NICOLAS GEOFFROY  

(1633 - 1694)

Little is known of the French composer and organist Jean-Nicolas Geoffroy. He was employed as an organist in Paris until about 1690, when he moved to Perpignan as organist at the cathedral there.

Harpsichord Music

A collection of 217 harpsichord pieces by Geoffroy, largely consisting of suites, was compiled after his death.

Church Music

A collection of organ music attributed to Geoffroy includes settings of liturgical texts in alternation, the vocal plainchant arranged in parts with an instrumental accompaniment, followed by an organ verset. These are the only examples of complete liturgical texts treated in this way in French music of the period.
