Gilles's Requiem, composed around the turn of the century, became one of the most frequently performed sacred compositions in eighteenth-century France. Included often on the programs of the Concert Spirituel and employed at services for well-known musicians and noblemen (including Rameau and Louis XV), Gilles's work enjoyed a fame eclipsing that of all other French settings of the Requiem before Berlioz. This first critical edition is based on the earliest known copy, in conjunction with the systematic study of four other manuscripts.
