Claude Goudimel  (?1514-1572)
Last updated: 24.01.20
According to The Oxford Companion to Music, Claude Goudimel was born at Besançon and murdered at Lyons. He was a great church musician who wrote masses, motets, and psalm-tune settings of metrical French versions of Marot and Béza, sung equally by Roman Catholics and Protestants until they were forbidden by authority. In middle life he was living in Metz, definitely associated with the Huguenots. Thence, on warning of trouble, many Huguenots flocked elsewhere and he returned to his native town, at last settling in Lyons. When the St Bartholomew massacres spread from Paris to the provinces he perished with his brethren.
