Louis Saladin

Louis Saladin was a seventeenth-century composer from Provence, France. Between the fourteenth and the eighteenth centuries, the papal territory in Provence known as Comtat Venaissin became a haven of refuge for Jews and eventually supported a flourishing community. Not much is known about Louis Saladin; his two surviving compositions are the Jewish circumcision cantata Canticum hebraicumand a church motet entitled, “Concert pour l’Assomption de la Vierge.”
