Composer Biography
Jacques Arcadelt, Arcadelt also spelled Archadelt or Arcadet, Jacques also called Jacob, also spelled Jakob (born c. 1504, Liège? [now in Belgium]—died October 14, 1568, Paris?, France), composer of madrigals whose early style—characterized by sonorous homophony and combined with the texts of such poets as Petrarch, Giovanni Boccaccio, Jacopo Sannazzaro, Pietro Bembo, and Michelangelo—helped establish that musical form as a serious art form. Arcadelt produced several volumes of madrigals, as well as a variety of chansons, masses, motets, and other works.” http://www.britannica.com/biography/Jacques-Arcadelt.
