(1657 - 1708)

Known as Philidor le cadet Jacques Danican Philidor was the younger brother of Andr Danican Philidor. He joined the royal grande curie in 1668, going on to play crumhorn and trumpet marine, and later oboe and bassoon in the royal chapel and from 1690 as a member of the chambre du roi. Much of his music is lost, apart from some marches preserved at Versailles, in the collection assembled by his brother.
