Biographical note

Jean Cauléry

[based on: H. Slenk, the Huguenot Psalter in the Low Countries]

Flemish (French) composer, flourished mid. 16th century (died after 1561)
Hardly anything is known about Cauléry. In 1548 he is mentioned on the payroll of Mary of Hungary's chapel.  Other chapel members were Benedictus Appenzeller ("Maistre des enfants de choeur" and Claeis Loys, brother to the singer Jan Loys. The next thing we know: In 1556 he was chapelmaster to Catherine de Medici (French Queen) who was then residing in Brussels. The  evidence of this employment is the title page of the Second Jardin musical, published in 1556 by Waelrant and Laet, where he is called "Maistre Jean Caulery, Maistre de la Chapelle de la Royne de France." 
Altbough other composers are represented in the second Jardin musical, Cauléry himself wrote the dedication, addressing it to his cousin, Michel de Francqueville, Abbot of St. Aubert in Cambrai. Cauléry contributed ten compositions, four of which are on sacred texts by Marot (Ps. 13, the Lord's Prayer, the Angelic Greeting and the Canticle of Simeon), and four on texts by Eustorg de Beaulieu, another Huguenot poet. The remaining two compositions are also settings of religious poems. Below the titlepage (click to enlarge) and the incipits.

The Lord's Prayer

The text of the Lord's Prayer by Clément Marot, set to music 4vv in two parts by Jean Cauléry. Beautiful chanson-motet in two parts. And beautifully sung by the ensemble Chant1450

Mark the change of 'atmosphere' when the second part 'Pardonne-nous' begins. Very similar effects in  Manchicourt and Gentian.
