Haucourt (Acourt, Johannes de Alte Curie)

(late 14th century)

French composer. His style, originally very florid and rhythmically complex in the manner characteristic of the period, later became simpler, with a greater emphasis on lyrical melody. The only work ascribed to 'Alte Curie' is an exceptionally intricate ballade Se doit il plusin the Chantilly MS.
