Born: c.1540

Died: 16 October 1599

Biography Regnart's birthdate can be guessed from his statement that he served the Habsburgs from 1557, presumably at the Prague court cappella directed by Jacobus Vaet. 1568-1570 were spent studying in Italy, after which he returned to Vienna. On the death of Maximilian in 1576 he joined the court of Emperor Rudolf II at Prague, and in 1582 he moved to Innsbruck to succeed Alexander Utendal as vice-cappelmeister at Archduke Ferdinand's court. A year after the latter's death in 1595 he returned to Prague as vice-kapellmeister under Philippe de Monte.
