The Medici Codex is a large collection of polyphonic compositions compiled as a wedding gift for the marriage of Lorenzo II de Medici, Duke of Urbino, and Madeleine de la Tour, daughter of Francis I. The codex, presented by an unknown donor, was edited by Mouton, whose works figure prominently in it, as do those of Willaert. Nothing is known of le Santier or the anonymous composers other than their appearance in the Codex. All works in the codex are sacred pieces, with the sole exception of Josquin's Nymphes des Bois.
