(1645 - 1701)

The Sieur de Sainte-Colombe was a leading player of the viola da gamba, and teacher of Marais, Rousseau and Danoville. There is little precise information about his life, but he is mentioned in Paris in 1678. He gave concerts with his two daughters, and his son seems to have pursued a similar career, which took him also to England.
