Robert Morton  (c.1430-1476)
Last updated: 14.10.17
According to a publisher's blurb, Robert Morton was a chappellain in the chapel choir of the Burgundian court from about 1457 to his death. But his reputation during his lifetime is reflected in the fact that several of his chansons survive in a large number of sources. His songs are distinguished by very well-balanced melodies, sometimes in all three parts. An unusual feature is a penchant for a tenor part that has a similar range to the top part, rather than sharing the tessitura of the contratenor.
