Last updated: 02.04.23
According to the Internet source given below, Jakob Regnart was Franco-Flemish composer. An Imperial chorister under Jacobus Vaet; as an adult was variously a singer at the Prague court, vice-Kapellmeisterin 1582-4 and from 1598, and Kapellmeisterto the archducal court at Innsbruck from 1585 to 1596. He published thirty-seven Masses, 195 motets, and a Passion, but is most important for his application to German secular song of the Italian styles of serious madrigal and simple villanella. Despite a Germanic tunefulness in the top line, his songs are more Italianate even than those of Orlando di Lassus, and were the most popular of those appearing at that time.
