Editor: Charles H. Giffen (submitted 2006-01-12).   Score information: Letter, 6 pages, 137 kB   Copyright: Personal
Edition notes: Musica ficta clearly indicated (probably more generous than necessary or advisable). The Canon (Quintus) on the Superius is pitched a diatonic step below the Superius. With these two voices and the Contratenor frequently overlapping in range, this creates a very rich texture.
Original key edition, but with the Canon part up an octave

General Information

Title: Dont vient cela
Composer: Thomas Crecquillon
Lyricist: Clément Marot , Chanson XIV, l'Adolescence Clementine (1532)

Number of voices: 5vv   Voicing: SSATB
Genre: SecularChanson

Language: French
Instruments: A cappella

First published: 1543 in Vingt et six chansons musicales et nouvelles a cincq parties, no. 1

Description: This is five-voiced setting with four parts, the superius being a canon. Same melody is used as in the original setting of Claudin De Sermisy. The canon has to start and stop at the indicated place, only a 'secunde' lower… (at C instead of D) without transpositon of course, which results in perfect harmony but an 'estrangement' of the melody, just as Crecquillons tip suggested: Chanter vous fault estrangement: You have to sing strangely. One of Tielman Susato's publications.

(modernized French)

D'où vient cela, Belle, je vous supplie
Que plus à moi ne vous recommandez ?
Toujours serai de tristesse rempli
Jusques à tant qu'au vrai le me mandez.
Je crois que plus d'Ami ne demandez,
Ou mauvais bruit de moi on vous révèle,
Ou votre cœur a fait amour nouvelle.
