(1528 - 1600)

Le Jeune was a Huguenot and important in the French music of his time for his attempts to follow in his settings the principles of classical versification, vers mesurés à l’antique, embraced by the poets of the Pléiade, Baïf and others.

Sacred Music

Le Jeune is particularly known for his many psalm settings based on the melodies of the Genevan Psalter and for various numbers of voices.

Secular Vocal Music

In his chansons and other vocal compositions Le Jeune’s publishers claimed that he combined the ancient with the modern – the latest compositional style with the principles of classical versification. His work had some influence on the later course of French music.
