Last updated: 07.10.17
According to the Internet source given below, Jean Richafort was a Franco-Flemish composer. According to the poet Ronsard he studied with Josquin des Préz. In 1507-9 he was singing-master at S. Rombault, Malines; in 1531 he was serving Maria of Hungary, Regent of the Netherlands, and from 1543 directed music at S. Gilles, Bruges. He wrote Masses, a Requiem, motets and chansons widely disseminated in printed anthologies; Glareanus included his motet "Christus resurgens" in the Dodecachordon, while his attractive 4-part "Quem dicunt homines" was one of the most popular motets of its day, with its bright Ionic mode and rhythmic ebullience; G. P. da Palestrina was among many who wrote parody Masses upon it.
