(1562 - 1633)

Born in St. Omer in the Spanish Netherlands, Jehan Titelouze, ordained priest, served as organist at Rouen Cathedral. He won a reputation not only as a composer but as an expert on the organ and as a poet.

Organ Music

Titelouze occupies a significant position as the earliest composer of organ music in France. His compositions include Hymnes de l’Église, versets for performance in alternation with the sung plainchant text of the Latin hymns so treated, and Le Magnificat, which offers eight different sets of versets based on the eight tones.
