(1540 - 1582)

A native of the Auvergne, Antoine de Bertrand seems to have spent the greater part of his life in Toulouse, where he belonged to a circle of humanist poets and scholars. He is said to have been murdered while returning to his estates, the source of his income, by Protestants who objected to his sacred compositions.

Vocal Music

Antoine de Bertrand composed chansons, setting poems by Ronsard and influenced in part by the Italian madrigal of the time. He published two collections of ‘Christian sonnets set to music’ and some 10 Latin hymns.
