Born: c. 1515

Died: after 1570


Jean Maillard was a French composer of the Renaissance. He was evidently famous during his time, and many of his motets were used as source material for parody masses by composers as distinguished as Palestrina; in addition Lassus reworked some of his music. Claude Goudimel also used a secular chanson of Maillard's as source material for a mass.

Six of Maillard's masses have survived, and two others are known to have been lost. Considerable other music of his has survived in printed editions, including eighty-six motets, settings of the Magnificat, lamentations, chansons spirituelles, and secular chansons. His Missa pro mortuis was an early Requiem mass, and one of the only examples from France in the 16th century.
