Hoyoul published some motets (like his master Lassus in Catholic Munich) in up to ten parts and German chorale motets (a typically protestant preference), and left more church music in manuscript. His “Aus tiefer Not”, on a German translation of the liturgical psalm “De profundis clamavi”, combines masterly the German chorale technique and the traditional Flemish contrapunct, constantly featuring the chorale melody in the tenor while it simultaneously inspires other parts, especialy the upper one, as well.
This Franco-Flemish Polyphony composer of the fifth generation (championed by Orlandus Lassus) was born in Liège, the episcopal seat and capital of the homonymous prince-bishopric. He was a pupil of Lassus (1564–65 at the Bavarian ducal court in Munich), worked as chorister (before 1563), adult alto singer, music teacher and composer (1565–89) and from 1589 (in succession to his father-in-law Ludwig Daser, who took the post in 1572, ten year after loosing the equivalent in Munich to Lassus) Kapellmeister at the (Baden-)Württemberg ducal court in Stuttgart, where he died.
