Composer and arranger active in Paris during the 1530’s through 1550’s. He edited a collection of ensemble dances for the firm of Attaingnant in 1557. His 57 four-voice chansons are chiefly of the concise and chordal variety, but a few venture beyond the confines of this idiom to embrace other aspects of the mid-century chanson. A number of his chosen texts were also set by composers such as Sandrin and Sermisy. Caroline M. Cunningham. “Du Tertre, Etienne,” New Grove 2, VII, 769-70.
