Deux mille musiciens et musiciennes d'Église en 1790

Abstract : All over France, after 1790, a large number of church musicians found themselves without a job and without an income, because of the closure of chapters and abbeys. The documents they gathered, with a view to obtaining a pension or financial help provide a first rate documentation for the knowledge of this profession in the last years of the Ancien Régime. This rich corpus is now preserved both in the Archives Nationales in Paris (Comité ecclésiastique, série DXIX) and the Archives Départementales (série L). It is now the object of nation-wide research aiming at the establishment of a prosopographic data base managed by the Centre d'histoire "Espaces et Cultures" (CHEC, Université Blaise-Pascal, Clermont-Ferrand) within a project funded by the Agence Nationale de la Recherche, MUSÉFREM.
