Lys, F. delocked

  • Frank Dobbins


(fl 1539–43). French composer. Eight chansons and a motet by him were printed in Lyons by Moderne between 1539 and 1543. His name may have been a pseudonym; the fleur de lys was the French royal device but was also used by many Italian families residing in Lyons. Most of the chansons are amorous épigrammes set in the suave style of the contemporary Parisian courtly chanson. Secouhez moy, however, is set in a syllabic, patter-song manner, with the opening and closing refrain in triple metre. (For further discussion, see F. Dobbins: Music in Renaissance Lyons, Oxford, 1992.)
