Magister Zacharias [Antonius Zachara da Teramo]; [Zacar]; [Zachara und Zacharias]; [Zaccara]; [Zeltenpferd (!?!)]; [Magister Zacharias Chantor Domini nostri Pape]


Italian who was a Papal singer around 1400 and wrote motets, including Sumite carissimi, whose rhythmic complexities are somewhat in the French style, and secular pieces. He is listed in the Roman papal lists between 1391 and 1407 as `scriptor litterarum apostolicarum' and `cantor'. He may also have been connected with the antipapal court in Bologna. His lively Cacciando per gustar is set in a market-place and incorporates the traders' cries; it is the last known caccia.
