Aliases: Wulfaert Hellinck; Lupus Hellinc; Lupus Helling


Born: 1493 or 1494

Died: c. 14 January 1541

Biography Lupus became a choirboy at St. Donatian in Bruges 1506. After 1515 he appears to have gone to Rome; a document from the Vatican archives gives his age as 24 in April of 1518. There was once doubt about whether he was the same ‘Lupo francese/fiammengo cantore’ in Ferrara that summer, and there is occasional confusion with Johannes Lupi. By 1519 Hellinck was back in Bruges, becoming succentor of Onze Lieve Vrouw on 20 June 1521 and at St Donatian on 17 June 1523.
