Paulus Wüst (c.1470-c.1540)

Swiss composer. He was a travelling minstrel ('ioculator egregius') until about 1510. [...] Later he probably lived in Augsburg and Basle. From about 1520 he was a headmaster in Kaysersberg, north-west of Colmar, Alsace. [...]

Apart from a Latin psalm motet and two sacred two-voice songs, 22 secular German songs for four and five voices have survived [...].
