General Information

Title: Mon coeur se recommande à vous (not to be confused with the homophonic setting whose attribution to Lasso is dubious.)
Composer: Orlando di Lasso
Lyricist: Clément Marot , Chanson XLII (first stanza) from Oeuvres, 1538

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

Language: French
Instruments: A cappella

First published: 1560 in Tiers livre des chansons a 4-6 parties, no. 18
  2nd published: 1570 in Mellange d'Orlande de Lassus, no. 45

  • This composition has nothing to do with a simple note to note harmonization of the same text which is often attributed to Lasso.
  • Lassus' pupil Eccard also wrote a 'parody mass' on this theme: Missa super "Mon cœur se recommande à vous".
  • The spelling "plain" in "plain d'ennuy", that all these editions use, following the 1560 source, is clearly a misspelling, as the 1570 source as well as the settings of the same text by Jean de Castro and Rinaldo del Mel have "plein" (= full), deriving from Latin "plenus", whereas "plain" (= flat) derives from "planus"; and "plain" makes no sense. Also Marot has "plein" in the 1546 edition of his works, after "plai(n)" in the 1533 edition.
