Antoine Busnoys (c.1430-1492) was one of the greatest of the Franco-Flemish composers, and is considered one of the most accomplished chanson writers of the later 15th century (approximately 65 surviving chansons). His smaller (established) sacred output (14 surviving works in Latin) was also quite significant in its time.
The spelling "Busnoys" has sometimes been adopted as more idiomatic than the previously-used "Busnois."
Tracks #1, #4 & #15 are conjectural attributions to Busnois.
