Alias: Franciscus Galletius


Born: c.1555

Died: after 1585


Flemish composer, he studied at the Jesuit college in Anchin (near Douai), and in 1582 became chaplain of the collegiate church of St Amé in Douai. His hymns are closely related to liturgical melodies and constitute a rare instance of the publication of polyphonic hymns in the southern Netherlands. The motets, usually on sombre texts, are in the tradition of Lassus.
