Pierre Fontaine

Pierre Fontaine (pronounced [pjɛʁ fɔ̃tɛn]; c. 1380 – c. 1450) was a French composer of the transitional era between the late Middle Ages and early Renaissance, and a member of the Burgundian School of composers. While he was well-known at the time, most of his music has probably been lost. All of his surviving music is secular, and all his compositions are chansons.
