Arnold de Lantins (d.1432) is one of the group of prominent composers of the early 1400s to be associated with Liège. He may have been a student of Ciconia, and is generally believed to have been the brother of Hugo de Lantins (fl.1420-30), although there is no clear documentation on either point.

Each movement of the mass is based upon Lantins' motet O pulcherrina mulierum, making it one of the earliest cyclic masses.
