Heugel, Johannes, German composer; b. c. 1505; d. Kassel, by Jan. 31, 1585. He entered the service of the Hesse court in Kassel about 1533 as a trumpeter and singer. From 1547 he fulfilled the duties of a Kapellmeister, and also was active as a court composer. His music reflects the influence of the post-Josquin Flemish school. Among his almost 500 compositions are 20 Magnificat settings, over 150 motets, 16 Psalm motets, many German Psalms, and sacred German songs.
