Philippe Courbois (fl. 1705-1730) was a French Baroque composer. It is commonly stated that he was maître de musique of the Duchess of Maine, but Michele Cabrini convincingly refutes this claim in his edition of Courbois's cantatas.[1] At least three of his masses were performed for the King of France at Versailles.[2] Sometime before 1710, Courbois published a book of seven cantatas with texts by Louis Fuzelier, who would later write the libretto of Les Indes Galantes. It is these cantatas for which he is most famous today [3]

Courbois was one of many minor French composers who cultivated the cantata during the Baroque period.[4]
