Little is known about the French born musician Charles Dieupart (?before 1667 c.1740) before he settled in England in 1703 or slightly earlier. Hawkins wrote that he was a 'fine performer on the violin and also on the harpsichord', commenting on 'his neat and elegant manner of playing the [violin] solos of Corelli', and the music he composed in England also shows that he adopted the Italian style. His harpsichord music, however, reflects the earlier stage of his career when he primarily cultivated French and Germanic styles. The Six Suittes de Clavessin, published in 1701, contains most of the pieces that are known, nevertheless two manuscripts are important sources of interesting alternative versions of those in the printed collection, and of movements not known from elsewhere. The pieces unique to manuscript include the first five movements of a hitherto unpublished suite in E major.
