Description: Micyllus's Sylvarum libri quinque presents two poems under the title Confide et ama ("trust and love"), the motto of George of Austria (1505–1557), illegitimate son of Emperor Maximilan I and Prince-Bishop of Liège. Confisus Domino is the first of them and was also set by Lassus (whose setting is also included in Thesaurus musicus). The item following Pinchon's setting in Thesaurus Musicus is Nicolas de Wismes's setting of the second poem, Vivere vis recte, which like Pinchon's and Lassus's pieces features the text Confide et ama as an ostinato. The first half of Vivere vis recte was also set by Dyricke Gerarde.
