Title: Tristitia et anxietas
Composer: Jacobus Clemens non Papa
First published: 1553 in Ecclesiasticarum cantionum quatuor vocum, liber 1, no. 5
Description: Somewhat unusually, Susato gave it a key signature of two flats, although some E flats require editorial cancellation, and in general quite a lot of editorial accidentals seem called for. The first word of the text is consistently spelled tristicia, which may cast light on the pronunciation of Latin in 16th century Flanders. The original clefs were C1, C3, C4 and F4.
