Robert Fayrfax, (born April 23, 1464, Deeping Gate, Lincolnshire, Eng.—died Oct. 24, 1521, St. Albans, Hertfordshire), foremost among the early English Tudor composers, noted principally for his masses and motets written in a style less florid than that of his predecessors. He is distinguished from his English contemporaries by his more frequent use of imitative counterpoint and the freedom with which he varies the number of voices employed during the course of a single composition.
