Jean Ghiselin

(c.1455 - c.1511)

Franco-Flemish composer. A singer in Florence in 1492-3, he then worked at the Ferrara court until at least 1503 (and may have been responsible for Josquin's going there) and in 1508 was a singer in Bergen op Zoom. He published a volume of Masses (based on chansons by such composers as Alexander Agricola and Ockeghem) in 1503, and his motets occur in anthologies; his style has features in common with that of Obrecht.
