Aliases: Jean Escatefer a.k.a. Cousin


Born: before 1425

Died: after 1475


Jean Cousin was singer at Duke Charles I of Bourbon's court at Moulins from 1446-1448. At the French royal chapel 1461-1474.

Music theorist and composer Johannes Tinctoris describes Cousin, along with Petrus de Domarto, as composers non parvae auctoritatis (of no small authority). Cousin's Missa nigrarum appears to have been lost, though an excerpt is referenced by Tinctoris. The title is thought to have been mistranscribed from either Nigra sum or Nisi granum
