According to The New Penguin Dictionary of Music, Louis Claude Daquin [also spelt d'Acquin] was a French composer of harpsichord pieces (including "The Cuckoo"), church music, etc.; organist from boyhood. He succeeded Jean-François Dandrieu at the Chapelle Royale in 1739 and afterwards became organist at Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris in 1755). Daquin obtained such success as an improviser that the police were sometimes called in to maintain order in the streets of Paris on the nights he performed.
Daquin also has Rigaudons published in Leichte Trios - Easy Trios and Spielstücke für Blockflöte und Gittarre as well as Dudelsack in Flötenbüchlein für kleine Leute (D/D/A) and Flötenbüchlein für kleine Leute (D/D).
