Haccourt, Nicolauslocked

  • Eugeen Schreurs


(b ?before 1600; d after 1644). Flemish choirmaster and composer. Two composers of this name were active in the Netherlands in the first half of the 17th century and it is difficult to distinguish between them. One Nicolaus Haccourt was choirmaster of Onze Lieve Vrouwbasiliek, Tongeren, between 12 November 1619 and 8 June 1640. On 26 November of the same year he became a priest. A namesake was active as choirmaster of the Collegiate Church of Our Lady, Maastricht, between 1624 and 1644, although he was suspended in 1628 and between 1630 and 1636 because of misconduct. In 1627 this Haccourt composed vespers for eight voices for the chapter. In 1644 he may have been presented as canon of St Maternus at the cathedral of St Lambert, Liège. The eight-voice vespers included in an inventory of Onze Lieve Vrouwekerk, St Truiden, were probably composed by him.
