François-Henri-Joseph Blaze, known as Castil-Blaze was a French musicologist, music critic, composer, and music editor.
As a composer, Castil-Blaze mostly made arrangements, but he was also the author of several original works, particularly of sacred music, of which there are two high masses. Finally, he worked as an editor, first for his own literary and musical works, but he was not limited to this: he was among the editors of the works of Beethoven.
