1500 – 1560
Who was Jacques Moderne?
Moderne was the second printer to publish music on a large scale in France using the single-impression method. The first one was Pierre Attaingnant of Paris, who began issuing his music books in 1527/8.
Although Moderne is nowadays known as a music publisher, which was a major part of his production and the part that brought him the greatest renown, he printed about one hundred books of several themes, such as religion, home remedies, palmistry, among others.
