47 Ave Maria…virgo serena (ca. 1485) – Josquin des Prez - This text shows the 5 virtues of Mary - Imitative and comes in in four voice canon - Imitation in duo, top two and bottom two - Wide range of voices, solid base to the sound - Cadences used to intrigue the ear and moves the song along - Three levels: Declamation, syntax, textual illustraion - The text contains three different liturgical items: a central votive antiphon to the Blessed Virgin Mary, a quatrain that quotes both words and music of Gregorian sequence for the Feast of Annunciation and a closing couplet that voices a common prayer formula of the day. 48 Missa super Ave Maria, Kyrie (1515) – Antoine de Fevin - More ornamentation, maybe trying to upstage - This is the technique of Perdi: imitation with an inversion that takes place, a different version in vertical seniorities - Consists of a thorough reweaving of the texture, producing a new polyphonic fabric, from the same fund of melodic motives 49 “Benedicta es, coelorum regina” - Josquin des Prez (Categorized with Marian Antiphon) - Six voice motet (36 voices), based on a chant sequence for the Feast of Annunciation of the Virgin, in the end there in 6 voices heading towards the final note, epic - Epic homorhythm on “Ave Maria Plena” - Imitation throughout building up the intensity, with a fast slow fast, perhaps a long pause after the first part (celebratory reasons) - Contains cantus firmus technique in the superius voice - 1a and 2b are not there, they didn’t make it into the motet - Not only about Mary, mentions the father - Josquins 3 style: declamation, syntax, and textual illustration 50 “Benedicta es, coelorum regina” – Adrian Willaert (Categorized with Marian Antiphon) - Absorbed into the imitative texture - No essential functional distinctions among the voices - Pairing of voices and canny deployment of the texture so that tuttis (it is the buildup of forces, ways of building sound) are rare and climactic - Attention to declamation and rhetorica
