Rameau, Jean Philippe (1683-1764), French composer, produced his first piece at Avignon, where he afterwards became organist. He published in 1722 his Treatise on Harmony, and in 1750 his great work, Demonstration of the Principle of Harmony, appeared, and made him famous. He was called to Paris, and while there composed numerous works for the theatre; some of them being of great excellence.

“If we would hold the true course in love, our first step must be to turn our eyes not to man, the sight of whom might oftener produce hatred than love, but to God, who requires that the love which we bear to him be diffused among all mankind, so that our fundamental principle must ever be, Let a man be what he may, he is still to be loved because God is loved.”
–Calvin, Institutes
