Gacian Reyneau (fl. 1398–1429) was a Burgundian composer at the court of Martin of Aragon.[1] His sole surviving attributed work,[2] the rondeau Va t'en mon cuer is one of the later works in the 1350-1420 span of the Codex Chantilly, written in the then "modern" simpler style.[3] An edition of the rondeau is found in Willi Apel Corpus Mensurabilis Musicae Vol.53 1970.[4] Several recordings have been made.
