Description: All voices (except the Tenor 2) start with the same "theme" of mi la re. This is a solmisation of the vowels of the text, a technique called "soggetto cavato". Here the solmisation is literally taken from the first two words of the text: mi la-rés.

Mi larés vous tousjours languir,
Mon bien, ma joye, ma souvenance,
De doeil morai sans esperance
Se ne me venés secourir.
