Michel Richard Delalande Biography
Michel Richard Delalande [de Lalande] (1657-1726) was a prolific French composer and organist who specialized in writing orchestral suites, known in their day as "Simphonies pour les Soupers du Roy", or, in an alternative spelling of the time, simply as "Symphonies". Delalande also composed ballets and church music. Born in Paris, he was a contemporary of Jean-Baptiste Lully and Francois Couperin. Delalande taught music to the daughters of Louis XIV of France, and was director of the royal chapel from 1714 until his death in Versailles in 1726.
