Description: The third book of Hermann Finck's Practica Musica is dedicated to canons and includes 26 examples. As with nearly all the items in the collection, this example is untexted (just the first three words are given) and unattributed. The alto part contains the melody of a chanson, with text by Marot, which was also set by Sermisy and Clemens. The piece has the inscription Qui se humiliat, exaltabitur ("who humbles himself will be exalted"); four voices are provided and Finck explains that a fifth voice may be generated, in canon with the alto line, starting a fifth below and moving a note up the scale each time a rest is encountered, thus finishing a fifth above.
