Michel Pignolet (Pinolet) de Montéclair (Andelot, Haute-Marne, bap. 4 Dec 1667 - Aumont, 22 [not 27] Sept 1737) was a French composer, theorist and teacher. "The carefully illustrated section on the ‘18 principal ornaments in singing’ in his Principes de musique makes this one of the most important sources on French vocal ornamentation of the early 18th century.”." (James R. Anthony).
