JOHANNES DE STOKEM (1445 - 1501)
Flemish composer Johannes de Stokem was apparently born near Liège, where he
met Tinctoris. He was in the service of Beatrice of Aragon, Queen of Hungary
after her marriage to Matthias Corvinus. By 1487 he is found as a singer in the
Papal Choir in Rome and seems to have been a musician of contemporary
importance. This is witnessed by the fact that four chansons by him are
included by the publisher Petrucci in his Harmonice Musices Odhecaton of
1501, the first printed collection of part-songs.
