These unpublished works come from a manuscript owned by the Jean Gray Hargrove Music Library, University of California, Berkeley.  Up to now they were ascribed to Lebègue, but in fact, in all likelihood, they are by Jacques Boyvin (±1650 † 1706).  The foreword of this edition actually provides an impressive number of comparisons with pieces from Boyvin’s organ books which leave not much doubt.
 
Planned for a rather medium-sized instrument (two manuals and a few pedals used in cadences), these verses without difficulties are a remarkable step between those by Nivers and Grigny, and Boyvin’s style, brilliant and moving in turn, is quite efficient. Three hymns may have been written for a convent.
