Show Summary Details


(fl late 14th century). French composer. The only composition attributable to him with certainty is the four-part bitextual ballade Armes, amours/O flour des flours set to the text by Eustache Deschamps lamenting Machaut’s death in 1377. Two three-part ballades (De Narcissus and Phiton, Phiton, beste tres venimeuse) by Magister Franciscus from the same manuscript ( F-CH 564) suggest that the two composers may be the same person. Phiton, Phiton borrows its first three bars from a similarly-titled piece by Machaut. (All three works are ed. in CMM Corpus mensurabilis musicae liii/1, 1970, and in PMFC Polyphonic Music of the Fourteenth Century, xviii–xix, 1981–2.)
