Guillaume de Machaut  (1300-1377)
Last updated: 24.01.20
According to The Oxford Companion to Music, Guillaume de Machaut [also Machault] was born about 1300 at Machaut in the Ardennes and died in Rheims about 1377. He was a learned priest and a graceful poet. He lived successively at the courts of John of Luxembourg, the Duchess of Normandy, and Charles V of Navarre (for whose coronation he wrote a notable Mass). Latterly he settled in Rheims, of whose cathedral he was a canon. His compositions (sacred and secular) are numerous and important. The oldest still existing polyphonic setting of the Mass is his, and he was the last of the age of the troubadours to write not merely the words but also the music of his songs. A complete edition of his works was begun in 1926 but later abandoned.
