French lutenist and composer, he was probably the son of the Breton composer Guillaume Tessier. A chamber musician to Henry IV of France; travelled in Germany and visited London, where his 4- and 5-part chansons and airs de cour were published in 1597. A further volume of 3-part airs appeared in Paris in 1604. In both publications tuneful treble parts are highlighted by the very simple chordal accompaniments.
