Category talk:Le Roux, Gaspard


"The earliest mention of him is in March 1690, when the Mercure de France published the opening of a translation of the hymn Veni creator, referring to a figured bass supplied by Le Roux. He was cited merely as a music teacher, but when it was mentioned six years later, he was elevated to ‘famous music teacher’... The inventory of his belongings at the time of his death is cited in a notary’s index for 17 June 1707, but the document itself is lost, and it is not known how long before that date he died" (Source: Grove Music Online) — P.davydov 13:41, 7 April 2009 (EDT)
