François Couperin (1668- 1733) was a French composer more commonly known for his harpsichord music, despite his 55 plus years spent as a church organist.

The Mass for the Convents is one of only two organ pieces that he wrote and was paired with another organ mass called Messe des Paroisses or The Mass for the Parishes, both dating between the years 1689 and 1690. The Mass shows Couperin’s charm and poetic nature throughout, and is considered one of his great accomplishments, particularly considering his young age at the time of its creation.
