Richard de Loqueville (? - before June 25 1418) was a Franco-Flemish composer. He served Duc Robert de Bar as a harp player (1407-10), then becoming master of the boys at Cambrai cathedral, where he remained until his death and was presumably the teacher of Dufay. His Mass movements, which do not use plainchant, are among the earliest compositions since organum to make a distinction between choral and solo polyphony and are stylistically very similar to the early Masses by Dufay. His chansons are good examples of the simple style favoured by those early fiftenth century composers who rejected the complexities of the Avignon school.
