N.B.: Much of the bibliographic data included on the Johannes Ockeghem Home Page as well as a substantial amount of research-related information contained in the author's revised doctoral dissertation is currently being updated and substantially augmented in order to be submitted for publication in monographic form. The monograph includes information on hundreds of items (see examples under Introduction below) not yet included on this page. These will be added gradually to the Johannes Ockeghem Home Page once the monograph has been published. In order to locate items not furnished on this page or to obtain more recent bibliographic information for any of the items provided here please contact the author directly.

Purpose

The Johannes Ockeghem Home Page is devoted to one of the fifteenth century's most innovative and enigmatic composers, Johannes Ockeghem (c.1410-1497). It is my intent to collate and organize as much information as is possible on the composer, in the hope that it will aid researchers, scholars, and general audiences alike in a greater understanding of and appreciation for the music of this contrapuntist. I welcome comments, corrections, discussion, feedback, and scholarly inquiries on any of the subjects here listed. Please feel free to Email me at atwells@ferris.edu should you wish reference or research assistance, or should you wish to contribute relevant links.

Dedication

I wish to thank Dr. Jeffrey Dean, Dr. Martin Picker, and Dr. Richard Wexler for their correspondence and insights regarding the analysis and structure of Ockeghem's works. Special thanks go to Dr. Dale Bonge, my Ph.D. dissertation advisor, Dr. Peter Urquhart, my M.A. thesis advisor, and finally, to Dr. Robert White, my B.M. thesis advisor and the individual who introduced me to the music of Ockeghem. Each of these scholars have contributed toward the impetus for this project. It is with gratitude and respect that I dedicate this page to them.
