Goudimel, Claude

Goudimel, Claude a French musical composer, was born about 1510 in Franche-Comte. He lived at Rome in 1540 when Palestrina studied there. In 1556 he was at Paris, and kept a note-printing establishment there. In 1562 he joined the Reformed Church, and was killed in the Huguenot massacre at Lyons, August 24, 1572. He prepared the music for Clement Marot's and Theodore Beza's translation of the Psalms (1565). Some writers assert that he also composed Huguenot hymns, such as are still sung; but this is a mistake.
