François Giroust

Giroust revived the motet in France through the pre-Revolutionary times and in addition wrote several patriotic songs through the First Republic. He kept positions with Orleans Cathedral and Saints-Innocent in Paris (grasp of music). His “Missa brevis” was performed in the coronation of Louis XVI but despite having this acclaim he didn’t discover himself without some economic straights. The `grands motets’ had been his compositional forte and in his “Analyse des motets de M. Giroust” he talked about the reason why for re-arranging music for the outdated text messages. The treatise was mainly a couple of textual translations. “Super flumina Babylonis,” like the majority of of his motets, included descriptive musical passages; the majority of his functions did not include consistent key situations.
