Pierre-César Abeille (bapt.1674, d. after 1733)

Almost nothing is known of the life of Pierre-César Abeille save for two appointments: the first was as maitre-de-chapelle at St Trophime in Arles, 1699-1700, the other he held for little more than 6 months in 1713, as vicaire du choeur and maître de musique at the important Parisian church of St Germain-l’Auxerrois.

His setting of the Psalms of David translated into French by the Bishop of Vence were intended for the use of the young ladies of St Cyr, and are highly regarded as skilful settings of great variety.
