Johannes Ockeghem

A contemporary of Guillaume Dufay and Josquin des Prés, the Flemish composer, singer, cleric, treasurer and diplomat was one of the most important composers of the fifteenth-century Ars Nova era. Ockeghem was lauded as a composer in his lifetime (c. 1410–1497), and his works are regarded as having had a considerable influence on fifteenth-century musical style. He worked in various official capacities in the French Court and was a well-known political figure. Ockeghem wrote highly complex choral Motets and Masses, such as Deo Gratias, his canon for 36 voices, as well as numerous secular works.
