Biography

Country Of origin: France

Pierre Attaingnant may have had some composition skills but he is most noted for his publishing and printing probably resulting from his prominent financial position due to inheritance and royal patronage. This description would understate his other major contributions to music, however. He compiled and redacted a fourteen volume set of motets by 1535 and invented a revolutonary innovation for the printing of music in which the staff and notes were printed in one `setting' rather than the two or three `settings' of previous methods -- printing the staff, notes and text one upon the other. ~ Keith Johnson~ Rovi
