Noel Faignient


Franco-Flemish composer. Lived in Antwerp (where he may have been a shopkeeper) from at least 1561 until 1577, and became Kapellmeisterto the Duke of Brunswick in 1580. In 1568 he published a volume of madrigals, chansons and motets which show the influence of Lassus; further pieces appeared in anthologies.
