Matheus de Sancto Johanne

Matheus de Sancto Johanne, French composer who flourished in the 2nd half of the 14th century. He became a member of the chapel of Louis I of Anjou in 1378. From 1382 to at least 1386 he served as capellanus in the private papal chapel in Avignon. He most likely was the Mayshuet of the Old Hall MS. He was a significant figure in the development of the Ars Subtilior. His extant works comprise 3 ballades, 2 rondeaux, and a motet. See W. Apel, ed., French Secular Compositions of the Fourteenth Century, Corpus Mensurabilis Musicae, LIII/1-3 (1970–72).
