Aliases: Jacques Clément; Jacob Clemens, Clemanes


Born: c. 1510-15

Died: 1555 or 1556?


Belgian composer, first noted as "Jacobus Clement Pbro" (a priest) at St. Donatien in Bruges in 1544 and subsequently associated with the court of Charles V and active in Ypres and Leiden. The epithet "non papa" ('not a pope') was added by the publisher Tielman Susato, perhaps more in jest than to avoid actual confusion with Pope Clement VII (1478-1534). Jacobus Vaet published a lament in 1558 alluding to a violent death; a ms. of Hic est vere martyr bears the inscription "Ultimum opus Clementis non Papæ anno 1555 21 aprilis".
