REGIS (De Roi) JEAN known also as Koninck or De Coninck one of the celebrated Belgian composers of the middle and last half of the 15th century He was contemporary with Okeghem, Busnois, and Caron, and according to Tinctoris's Pro portionale (1476) one of the most clever musicians of his time. Little else is known of him. From the researches made by de Burbure and Pinchart it is certain that he never was a member of the ducal chapel of Burgundy nor of the Cathedral of Antwerp as so many of the composers of that time were.
Credo for 5 voices from his mass Village in Petrucci's fragments of masses by different celebrated authors (1508).
In the first book of motets by the same collector there are 4 by Regis: Ave Maria; Clangat, pleba, floret; Salve Sponsa tui genitrix; Lux solemnis adest.
