Louis-Nicolas Clérambault served as organist at Mme de Maintenon’s Maison Royale de Saint-Cyr and at the Paris church of Saint-Sulpice in the reigns of Louis XIV and Louis XV. He was among the most highly regarded French composers and performers of his day.

Vocal Music

Clérambault was particularly acclaimed for his cantatas. These incorporate Italian techniques into a thoroughly French genre, generally dealing dramatically with subjects drawn from classical mythology and legend.
