(1502 - 1552)

The only contemporary references to Mathieu Gascongne, a priest from the diocese of Cambrai, are found in the records of the French court in the early reign of François I, where he is mentioned among musicians and singers of the Chapel Royal, and in a papal document of 1518.

Sacred and Secular Vocal Music

Documentary evidence and style suggest that Gascongne belonged as a composer to the so-called school of Cambrai. A number of his Mass settings are preserved, with other liturgical music, motets and secular chansons. His Mass Mijn herte is based on a chanson by Pierre de La Rue.
