LUPUS HELLINCK (1494 - 1541)
The singer and composer Lupus (Wulfaert) Hellinck was a chorister at St Donatian in Bruges. He seems to have spent some time in Rome, but by 1519 was again in Bruges, serving there in the following years as succentor at St Donatian’s. The presence of other musicians in Italy with the same Latin name has led to difficulties regarding the attribution of some works earlier credited to him.
Sacred and Secular Vocal Music
Hellinck left a number of Mass settings and motets, with a smaller number of French chansons and Flemish songs.
