Dominique Phinot

(? - d. 1557/60)

French (or Italian) composer. He is known to have been in Lyons at least in 1547-8, and later to have lived in Pesaro. He was apparently executed for grossly indecent behaviour. One of the most important and highly esteemed polyphonists of his day, he published chansons and church music, most of which is in the richly imitative style of Gombert. However, some of his motets, and a fine set of Lamentations, are important early examples of the double-choir style developed by Willaert.
