Example text

He was an organist at the nearby church of Ste Waudru beginning in 1419, and sometime in the 1420s he joined the Burgundian court, remaining there for approximately three decades. From 1452 until his death he served as provost of the church of St Vincent in Soignies. He was held in high esteem during the early years of the Renaissance—his compositions were copied in more than fifty manuscripts during the latter decades of the fifteenth century, and many of his motets and chansons were parodied by other composers.

For instance, the chant O dulcis amica Dei is added to the final Agnus Dei of Missa Ave sanctissima Maria, the L’homme armé melody is incorporated into the texture of Missa Sancta dei genitrix, and the soprano part in the last phrase of Josquin’s motet Ave Maria . . virgo serena is quoted in Missa de septem doloribus. Two masses— Missa O salutaris hostia and Missa Ave sanctissima Maria—are completely canonic, and two masses—Missa Cum iocunditate and Missa Sancta dei genitrix—feature ostinatos. Canons and ostinatos are also prominent features of the motets and chansons.

Virgo serena is quoted in Missa de septem doloribus.
