Jean Le Cocq (Gallus)

(fl.1514 - 43)

Franco-Flemish composer. Probably a Papal singer in 1514, he accompanied Willaert to the Ferrara court in 1522 and was maestro di cappella there until 1541. He published motets and a collection of madrigals (including works by other composers), and his chansons, in a motet-like style, appeared in anthologies.
