Hayne van Ghizeghem

van Ghizeghem

Hayne van Ghizeghem (1445?-1497?) was a Franco-Flemish composer of the early Renaissance Burgundian School. While many of his works have survived, little is known about his life. His musical talent must have been noticed early by Charles, Count of Charolais (later to become Charles the Bold) because there is a record of his being personally assigned to a teacher by him; in 1467 he is shown in the Burgundian employment records as being a singer. In addition, he was named along with Adrien Basin and Antoine Busnois as "chantre et valet de chambre" to Charles, indicating the special regard in which he was held. In addition to serving as a singer and composer, he served as a soldier as well.
