Jollage, Charles-Alexandre


(d ?Paris, 1761). French organist and composer. He is identified on the title-page of his only publication, Premier livre de pièces de clavecin (Paris, 1738), as ‘formerly organist to the King of Poland’. The appointment probably terminated in 1733, when Stanislaus returned from Chambord to Warsaw to claim his throne. The dedication of the pieces to the Marquise of Clermont d’Amboise suggests that he had for some time been active in Paris as a harpsichord teacher, since he had presented ‘most’ of them to her before publication. About 1740 he inaugurated the organ of the Petits-Pères (the chapel of an Augustinian convent, now the church of Notre Dame des Victoires), was appointed organist then or later, and continued there until his death. He appeared at the Concert Spirituel on 24 December 1750, and in 1755 he became one of the four quarterly organists of the cathedral of Notre Dame. In 1753 he was called upon by the Parisian organ builder Robert Richard, to whom he owed money, to approve an organ for the cathedral in Quebec City. With one or two exceptions, and notwithstanding occasional lapses like parallel 6-4 chords, Jollage’s pieces are bland and conventional. Two of them are legato and staccato versions of the same music; another, L’italienne, seems by its style to celebrate the arrival of Scarlatti’s sonatas on the Parisian scene. The publication of the air Belle Iris, vos regards (now in GB-Lbl) was announced in the Mercure de France in July 1736.
