(1455 - 1507)

The Flemish composer Johannes Ghiselin, also known as Verbonnet, was in the service of the d'Este family in Ferrara, and maintained this connection in a career that took him to Florence and to the service of the King of France. He was entrusted with the accompaniment of Josquin from Paris to Ferrara, when the latter was appointed to the court chapel there, and possibly with the task of escorting Obrecht to Ferrara in 1504. Regarded as one of the leading composers of his time, he returned north to Bergen op Zoom after the death of Ercole d'Este I in 1505. His compositions include nine Masses, motets, with secular French and Flemish chansons and songs.
