Pierre Beauchamp

Pierre Beauchamp (also Beauchamps (30 October 1631 – February 1705) was a French choreographer, dancer and composer, and the probable inventor of Beauchamp–Feuillet notation. His grand-father was called Christophe (a musician ) and his father, a violonist of the king's chamber, was simply called Louis. Following a custom of the time, Pierre Beauchamp was named Pierre after his godfather Pierre Vacherot, tailor of the queen's pages and a relative of the Beauchamps family. See Regine Kunzle (Astier) and John Powell Powell, John S. “Pierre Beauchamps, Choreographer to Molière's Troupe Du Roy.” Music & Letters, vol. 76, no. 2, 1995, pp. 168–186.
