TISSERAND, Jean. b. date and place unknown; d. 1494. Tisserand was a Franciscan friar, working in Paris in the late 15th century, where he founded an Order for penitent women. He was the author of two Easter hymns, ‘Surrexit hodie’ and ‘O Filii et Filiae’*. His sermons were published after his death as Sermones Religiosissimi F. Jo. Tisserandi, quos tempore Adventus Parisiensibus disseminavit (Paris, 1517).
The authorship of ‘O filii et filiae’ was uncertain for many years. Tisserand was established as the author by Gastoué (1907).
