Pieter Cornet (1562-c.1626) was a Belgian organist and composer about whom rather little is known. He was apparently one of the leading organists of the time, and had interactions with both John Bull and Peter Philips during their tenures in Belgium. His style is largely English, with some French and Italian influences.
