Nicholas A’Kempis

Nicholas A’Kempis was organist of St Gudule, at Brussels, about 1628; composed three books of symphonies (Antwerp 1644, 1647, and 1649).

A certain Jean Florent A’Kempis was organist of another church in Brussels from about 1657; he was certainly the author of a book of ‘Cantiones’ published at Antwerp in 1657, and possibly wrote the ‘Missae et Motetta’ and a requiem, the former of which, published at Antwerp in 1650, has been also ascribed to the other A’Kempis.
