Johannes Ockeghem

From ChoralWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Aliases: Jean de Ockegham; Ockenheim; Okeghem; Okchem; Ogkegum; Hocquegam


Born: c. 1410-1425

Died: 6 February 1497


Johannes Ockeghem was the most famous composer of the Franco-Flemish School in the last half of the 15th century, and is often considered the most influential composer between Dufay and Josquin des Prez. In addition to being a renowned composer, he was also an honored singer, choirmaster, and teacher.

Around 39 spellings of his last name are recorded, Ockeghem as well as Okeghem being used in the Chigi codex, the most important source of his works. E. Giraudet (1885) proposed Jean de Ockeghem as a standard spelling based on a purported signature, since lost. Glareanus (1547) germanizes it to Johannes Ockenheim; other versions fall somewhere between Jan Hocquegam and Obghuen.
