A child wonder who stirred the imagination of the Court, Dandrieu was a virtuoso harpsichordist but, above all, organist of the Royal Chapel of Versailles from 1721. He left a corpus of work of a rare inventiveness tracing out the Chapelís most dazzling moments under the reign of Louis XV. Here are Magnificats, pieces for Christmas and some splendid hallmark scores that offer snapshots of the liturgical art of the Kingís Organist at the height of the French Baroque. Dandrieu writes music for organ to equal the harpsichord masterpieces of his time. Jean-Baptiste Robin, organist of the Royal Chapel of Versailles, makes the Great Organ ring with majesty, thanks to a decade of close familiarity with this historic instrument.

Recorded July 2019 on the Grandes Orgues (1710) at the Royal Chapel of Versailles
