Though not as famous as his nephew, Jean-François, Pierre Dandrieu’s position as organist at Saint-Barthélemy was filled with intrigue, not least after becoming subject to a vicious smear campaign by Louis Marchand and the organ builder Henri Lesclop. His only publication is a collection of noëls and Easter pieces, which was first published in 1714 and reissued some thirteen years in a revised edition. While most of these noëls form the basis of Jean-François Dandrieu’s 1739 collection, they are nevertheless charming and valuable pieces.
The preface relays the strange affair of Dandrieu and Marchand, looks at the genesis of the collection and discusses its revision. Notes are also provided on performance style, registration and ornamentation.
