Johannes Tourout and the Imperial Hofkantorei ca. 1460
Languages of publication
Johannes Tourout is known to us from several Central European music sources and from a Vatican document dated 3 July 1460, which mentions him as a cantor of Emperor Frederick III. The author establishes a timeframe for his period of activity in Central Europe (late 1450s – before 1467) and postulates several hypotheses concerning the composer’s career. The author has reconstructed the personnel of the imperial cantors’ ensemble around the year 1460 and provides detailed biographies of its members.
