Jehan de Lescurel

Jehan de Lescurel (also Jehannot de l'Escurel) (died 1304) was a medieval poet and composer.

He was the son of a merchant in Paris, and was a cleric at Notre Dame Cathedral. He wrote monophonic music in the style of the troubadors and trouveres; only one of his 34 works was polyphonic, although he wrote other works which have not survived.

In 1304 he was hanged for an unknown offense.
