Jean Lheritier (01/01/1480 - 01/01/1551)

Jean Lhéritier was born in the diocese of Thérouanne, in the Pas-de-Calais. By 1506 he was in the service of Alfonso I d’Este in Ferrara and is later recorded as maestro di cappella at the French church, San Luigi dei Francesi, in Rome. He seems to have spent time in Mantua and in the chapel of the Bishop of Verona. From 1540 to 1552 he is mentioned as magister capellae to the papal legate in Avignon, Cardinal François de Clermont. He ranks among the leading composers in the generation after Josquin.

Sacred Music

Lhéritier left a Mass setting, three settings of the Magnificat, and a number of motets.
