Baude Cordier (*ca. 1380 in Rheims, died before 1440) was a French Medieval composer from Rheims.

He has ten secular pieces, most of which are rondeaux:

* some are in the rhythmically complex late fourteenth century French style
* others are simpler, with greater emphasis on lyrical melody.

He has two chansons in the Chantilly Manuscript:

* One is a love song called "Belle, Bonne, Sage" (Good, Beautiful, Wise)- The manuscript is in the shape of a heart and makes use of coloration
* the other is a circular canon "Tout Par Compas" - The manuscript of this piece is written in circles.

His mass movement in the Apt MS is also in a more fifteenth century style.
