If Jeanne d'Arc (1412-1431) heard any sophisticated polyphony or courtly instrumental music, it would been purely by chance. Such music was not being performed in the village of Domremy, where she spent more than the first half of her brief life. Her best chance of hearing such music - unlikely as it is - would have been after she was captured by troops of Philip the Good, Duke of Burgundy from 1419-1467. The two greatest and most renowned composers of Europe at that time were Burgundians -- Guillaume Dufay (1397-1474) and Gilles Binchois (1400-1460). Binchois is known to have been employed in the court chapel of Philip the Good in the 1420s. In fact, Philip was one of the most extravagant patrons of music and the visual arts of his era, an opulence he could afford as the ruler of the richest, most commercially and socially advanced regions of North Europe, including the lands that are now the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, Alsace-Lorraine, and other 'counties' that are now part of France and Germany all the way to the Swiss border. Burgundy never evolved in a 'nation state' but in the 15th Century it was a sprawling realm of pelf and power. The painters Rogier van der Weyden (1400-1464) and Jan van Eyck (1395-1441) were Burgundians, patronized by Philip the Good and his courtiers, both secular and clerical. Philip himself was a ruler of such stature that it was he who founded the Order of the Golden Fleece, the most exclusive "club" in history, a knightly order of potentates from all of Europe which still exists today.

Whereas Dufay traveled widely and reside in Italy for major years of his career, Gilles Binchois appears to have spent nearly all his life near his birthplace of Mons, in Burgundy.
