(1627 - 1707)

Nicolas Gigault enjoyed some prosperity as an organist in Paris from 1646 until his death, holding appointments at various churches.

Organ Music

Gigault’s music for the organ is contained in two publications: a 1683 Livre de musique that contains a variety of works for keyboard and other instruments; and a Livre de musique pour l’orgue (‘Music Book for the Organ’), published in 1685 and containing some 180 organ pieces which are characteristic, in their mixture of the sacred and secular, of the French organ music of the period.
