Biography

Little is known of the early life of Franco-Flemish composer Jean de Bonmarché. After a period as Dean at Notre-Dame-de-la-Treille Cathedral in Lille, he was appointed master of the choirboys at the cathedral in Cambrai from 1560. In 1564, he was invited to take up the prestigious post of maestro de capilla flamenca (Master of the Flemish Chapel) at the Royal Court in Madrid, following the death of the incumbent, Pierre de Manchicourt. Bonmarché held the Royal office from 1565 until retiring from the position not long before his death in 1570. The unbroken line of Flemish incumbents, stretching back to Marbrianus de Orto in 1512, continued with the appointment of Geert van Turnhout as his successor in 1571.

Bonmarché's only surviving work is an eight-voice motet, set in the form of a quadruple canon.
