Johannes Ockeghem

Ockeghem, Johannes (yōhänˈəs ŏkˈəgĕm) [key], c.1410–1497, Flemish composer. Ockeghem is thought to have been a pupil of Gilles Binchois and was definitely taught by Guillaume Dufay. He himself taught Josquin Desprez. He served three kings of France—Charles VII, Louis XI, and Charles VIII—and died at Tours. Considered the leader of the second generation of Flemish composers, he made highly influential contributions to imitative counterpoint in sacred music.
