Calvin, Jean

(10 July 1509, Noyon, France – 27 May 1564, Geneva)
   Founder of the Reformed Protestant traditions, he restricted liturgical music to congregational singing of psalms and a few canticles. The hymnals published under his supervision, from 1539 to 1562, include monophonic settings of vernacular, metrical psalms translated by himself, the great poet Clément Marot (c. 1497–1544) and Théodore de Beze (1519–1605). The most influential of these was the 1562 Genevan Psalter.
