P. Tabart
Pierre Tabart [Tabary, Tabaret] (1645 - 1716), a French composer. He was born in Chinon (Indre-et-Loire, Centre), central France, far from the capital and later moved northwards to posts some distance from Paris. He is thus a perfect example of a provincial maître de chapelle in the reign of Louis XIV. Tabart was a personal friend of Sébastien de Brossard.
