Jean Lhéritier: master of the mournful Alleluya
Born around 1480 in the Pas-de- Calais, Jean Lhéritier belonged to the next generation of composers after Josquin Des Prés. One source describes him as a ‘disciple’ of Josquin, though it is not clear whether this implies direct contact. After his mid-twenties, Lhéritier seems, like many composers from neighbouring Flanders, to have spent most of his career in Italy: at Ferrara, Rome (working for the Pope as well as the French church there), Mantua (working for the Gonzagas), Verona (where he was employed by the Bishop) and possibly Venice.
