Born: c. 1490
Died: after 1561
Biography The birthdate is estimated from a payment in 1506 toward the education of a "Pierre Sandrin". He appears to have been an actor named Pierre Renault, Sandrin being a character in the farce Le savetier qui ne respont que chansons who could only speak in names of songs. Our composer held numerous chapel posts in France and Italy, but the surviving oeuvre consists of only 50 4-part chansons and one madrigal. In 1560 he made a will in Paris and returned to Rome, where he vanishes from the record.
