a French composer and harpsichordist. Born in Turin, Royer went to Paris in 1725, and in 1734 became maƮtre de musique des enfants de France, responsible for the musical education of the children of the king, Louis XV. Royer is particularly known for his often extravagant and virtuosic harpsichord music, especially "La Marche des Scythes," which ends his first book of harpsichord pieces.
