Last updated: 02.11.17
According to the Internet source given below, Elisabeth-Claude Jacquet de la Guerre (who married the organist Marin de la Guerre) enjoyed a dazzling career as harpsichordist and composer in the Paris of Louis XIV, winning praise from king and public alike. Related to harpsichord builder Claude Jacquet and to the Daquin family [through her mother Anne de la Touche], Elisabeth was born into a musical environment that soon widened to include both private salons and the royal household itself. Elizabeth's triumphant career brought her considerable wealth and international fame in her own lifetime. She composed three books of cantatas, an opera and a Te Deum, sonatas for violin and for harpsichord, two books of harpsichord pieces, and many popular airs and songs.
