Grenon, Nicolas, French composer; b. c. 1380; d. 1456. He became a clerk at Notre Dame Cathedral in 1399, and also was a canon at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, where he later became a sub-deacon and then a deacon in 1401. From 1403 to 1408 he was master of the choirboys at Laon Cathedral, and in 1408-09 he was a singer and teacher at Cambrai Cathedral. He was in the service of John the Fearless, Duke of Burgundy, from 1412 to 1419. After a brief return to Cambrai Cathedral, he served as master of the choirboys at the Papal Chapel in Rome (1425-27) before settling in Cambrai. His extant works comprise a portion of a Gloria, 4 motets, and 5 chansons.
