PIERRE SANDRIN  

(1490 - 1561)

The French composer Pierre Regnault took the sobriquet Sandrin from the farce Le savetier qui ne respont que chansons in which the cobbler Sandrin only answers questions with the beginnings of songs. He may have served as a chorister at the French court and in 1517 was employed as a singer by Louise de Savoy, thereafter perhaps earning a living on the stage for some years. By 1539 he was a singer in the royal chapel and there won some distinction as a composer. By 1554 he was serving as maestro di cappella to Cardinal Ippolito d'Este in Siena,but there is no record of his activities after 1560. He left some fifty four-voice chansons, developing his style, particularly through his connections with Italy.
