Jacques Vide

(fl. 1410-33)

Franco-Flemish composer. An ecclesiastic in Bruges in 1410, he served the Burgundian court as valet de chambreand secretary to Philip the Good 1423-33. He seems neither to have sung in a church choir nor to have left any sacred music, but he composed some fine chansons, several of which make bold use of dissonance. Las j'ay perdu,complete in two parts but with a blank extra stave, may be an attempt at visual illustration of a text, while in Amans double, à 4, both top parts are of equal importance.
