Charles Racquet (1597–1664) was a French organist and composer, best known for his monumental organ Fantaisie. He came from a large family of Parisian organists and himself was appointed organist of Notre Dame de Paris at an early age, in 1618. He held the post until shortly before his death and was succeeded by another member of the Racquet family. He also served as musician to Marie de' Medici (a post that his father Balthazar occupied earlier) and to Anne d'Autriche, the Queen Mother. Racquet was very highly regarded by his contemporaries: his pupils included the famous lutenist Denis Gaultier (who wrote a tombeau on his teacher's death), Jesuit scholar Marin Mersenne was a close friend of his. In the 18th century writer Jean-Benjamin La Borde named Racquet "the best organist of his tim

  • Charles Racquet (Raquet, ou Raquette), né à Paris en 1598, et mort dans la même ville le 1er janvier 1664, est un compositeur et organiste français.
  • Nacque da una grande famiglia di organisti parigini e lui stesso divenne organista della Cattedrale di Notre-Dame di Parigi in giovane età, nel 1618. Egli mantenne il posto quasi sino alla morte, quando fu sostituito da un altro membro della famiglia Racquet. Fu anche musico di Maria de' Medici, posto occupato dal padre Balthazar in passato e di Anna d’Austria. Racquet era assai stimato dai suoi contemporanei: tra i suoi allievi spiccarono il celebre liutista Denis Gaultier (che scrisse anche un tombeau alla morte del maestro), il gesuita Marin Mersenne fu suo intimo amico e persino lo scrittore del XVIII secolo Jean-Benjamin La Borde definí Racquet "il miglior organista del suo tempo".
