His first two publications were of sacred music, but his only other church music, in manuscript, dates from much later in his life. He is most notable as a composer of instrumental music, which includes 57 attractive dance pieces for three violins without continuo (1679) and, in his other publications, works ranging from Italianate trio sonatas to those showing the influence of the French overture.

Flemish composer and violinist Carl Rosier wa active mainly in Germany. From about 1664 he was a violinist at the court of the Elector Maximilian Heinrich in Bonn and later became vice-Kapellmeister there. From 1675 he lived principally in Cologne, but from about 1683 to 1699 he also worked in the Netherlands, where he was highly regarded as a violinist and numbered Carolus Hacquart among his colleagues.
On a title-page of 1691 he is described as vice-Kapellmeister at the court at Cologne. In 1967 he participated in a collegium musicum in Amsterdam together with Nicolas Desrosier, Hendrik Anders, N.F. Le Grand and others. In 1699 he was Kapellmeister of Cologne Cathedral and in 1701 was appointed to a similar post by the city council: he thus held simultaneously the two most important positions in the musical life of Cologne. His daughter Maria Anna married Willem de Fesch.
