Alias: Jehan Leroy


Born: c. 1425

Died: c. 1496

Biography Regis surfaces in 1451 as Jehan Leroy, chorus master at the collegiate church of St Vincent, Soignies. 3 works (Missa crucis, Regina caeli, and a Missa ‘L’homme armé) were copied between 1462 and 1465 into now lost choirbooks at Cambrai cathedral between 1462 and 1465. He is among the singers listed in Loyset Compère's Omnium bonorum plena, and the will of Guillaume Dufay (1474) names Regis as his "clerc". Regis was scholasticus at St Vincent from 1462; the post was dissolved in early summer 1496, presumably following his death.
