Description Castil-Blaze (1784-1857) Paris, Chez Paulin, Libraire-Editeur, Place de la Bourse. 1832 ML3460 B63 1832 This work provides an excellent record of the ballets and dances popular during the First Republic, including a description of the Festival of the Supreme Being. The Festival, introduced by Maximilien Robespierre (1758-1794), was his attempt to create a civil religion intended to unify post-revolutionary France. The highly-structured, ceremonial, and symbolic program for the festival was created by the painter David. Castil-Blaze also detailed the debut and early success of prima ballerina Marie Taglioni. Castil-Blaze is the pen name of Francois-Henry Joseph Blaze, a French music critic who compiled a dictionary on modern music. University of Utah copy bound with Chapelle-musique des rois de France. Paris: Paulin, 1832. Chapelle treats patented church music from early France and the instruments used.
