(1510 - 1556)

Clemens non Papa, as he is generally known, presumably in jocular distinction from Pope Clement, was among the most prolific Franco-Flemish composers and enjoyed a career in the Netherlands, for a time in the service of a leading general of Charles V and perhaps of the Emperor himself. His music is characteristic of the period and place.

Sacred Vocal Music

Clemens non Papa left a considerable quantity of church music, fifteen Masses, 233 motets, fifteen Magnificat settings and 159 Souterliedekens, settings of the Psalms in Dutch.

Secular Vocal Music

The secular vocal music of Clemens non Papa includes 89 French chansons, written in the polyphonic style of the time.
