Alexander Agricola Netherlands
Alexander Agricola (1445 or 1446 – August 1506) was a Franco-Flemish composer of the Renaissance. As is common with composers of the period, very little is known of his early life, not even his place of birth. He may have been born in present-day Germany, since he is referred to in some Italian documents as d'Allemagno or d'Allemagna. Most of his life he spent in posts in Italy, France and the Low Countries, though there are gaps where his activities are not known, and he seems to have left many of his posts without permission.
