Boyvin was also an organ teacher: François d'Agincourt was one of his pupils and succeeded him as organist of the Rouen Cathedral. Like Titelouze, Boyvin remained the organist of the cathedral until his death on June 30, 1706. Boyvin published two collections of organ works, in 1689 and in 1700, both featuring pieces spanning through all church modes. The books contain 16 suites, no less than 120 individual pieces total. The second book contains the Traité abrégé de l'accompagnement, a treatise on accompaniment.
The pieces are liturgical in nature and exhibit a brilliant style which makes use of forms and discoveries by Nicolas Lebègue and Guillaume-Gabriel Nivers. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
