For the composer of some of the most popular chansons of the period, little is known about John Bedyngham. He might have been the man of a similar name who studied at Winchester and Oxford; this man took law degrees at the same time that Bedyngham's name appears on the list of London's Guild of Parish Clerks, 1449 (Fallows, New Grove entry). Bedyngham wrote various sacred works, including a mass on Binchois' Dueil Angoisseux, but his most transmitted music was his songs, which included Gentil madonna, So ys emprentid, Myn hertis lust, and O Rosa bella, often ascribed to John Dunstable.
