Gilles Binchois

Gilles Binchois?

(c.1400 - 1460)

Binchois was a contemporary of Guilliame Dufay, and the leading composer at the court of Burgundy during the middle third of the fifteenth century. Binchois is remembered primarily for his secular chansons, for which composition he was known during his lifetime as at least the equal of Dufay.

His entire creative life was spent in Burgundy, and so his style is less varied – more grounded – than those of many other prominent composers of the era. Binchois' output represents one of the highest points in French secular composition in the 15th century, every song being a carefully crafted masterpiece. ~ Todd McComb (6/94)
