Henry DU MONT or DUMONT (1610 - 1684)

Composer born in 1610 in Belgium, near Hasselt, in Limburg (his birth name is Thiers, which means Mont), Henry Dumont received his musical education in Maastricht (Holland), including the organ. After a stay in Liège, in 1638 he became organist at the Saint-Paul church in Paris (under the name of Henry Dumont, or according to the publications of some of his works Du Mont).

Harpsichordist at the court of the Duke of Anjou, brother of Louis XIV, from 1652, he entered the service of the Queen in 1660 and in 1663 became one of the four sub-masters of the Royal Chapel (with Pierre Robert, Thomas Gobert and Gabriel Expilly). He died in Paris in 1684.

His compositions, mainly religious, include motets with 2 and 4 voices in French (paraphrase of the psalms of Antoine Godeau, bishop of Vence and Grasse) and in Latin, grands motets for choir, soloists and instruments and five "messes royales".
