(1470 - 1512)

Antoine de Févin was a priest and singer in the service of Louis XII. As a composer he was compared by contemporaries to Josquin and earns with him, Festa and others a reference in Rabelais among composers of contemporary distinction.

Church Music

Févin, as might be expected, wrote Mass settings, Magnificats and motets, the first principally based on Gregorian chants. His motet Adiutorium nostrum or Celeste beneficium (‘Our help is in the name of the Lord’ or ‘Heaven’s favour’), sometimes attributed to Jean Mouton, is included in the presentation manuscripts compiled by Alamire (Petrus Imhoff) for the Burgundian-Habsburg court.
