CLAUDE GOUDIMEL  

(1514 - 1572)

The French Huguenot composer Claude Goudimel was born in Besançon and died in the St Bartholomew’s Day Massacre. He was involved with contemporary French experiments in versification and word-setting. His settings of the Odes of Horace are lost.

Church Music

Goudimel is chiefly known for his settings of the Psalms, some dividing the melody between the voices, some keeping the melody in the top voice, and others placing the melody of the Genevan Huguenot Psalter in the tenor, to the harmony of the other voices.
