Notes & Reviews:
Michel Corrette was born in Rouen, where his father Gaspard was an organist. Sadly, little is known about his early life, but we know he held positions as organist in several churches in Paris. For many years his reputation rested on his teaching methods and educational works, and he can claim to have written and published more teaching methods than any other composer. On this disc of 'Les Six Symphonies de Noel', is heard Corrette writing in a style firmly rooted in the Baroque, but the inclusion of "foreign" material such as the tune from Poland and from North America show the innovative and truly creative side of the composer. These are period instrument performances.
