Misc. Notes First published at Musescore

This typeset is based on a reprint in the treatise Dodecachordon, where the text is not set clearly to individual notes, and which includes at least two misprints: incorrect note lengths in the beginning of the second part (corrected in the typeset), and parallel octaves in measure 68 (not corrected). There are also rhythmic colorations (tuplets) not present in other versions.

Extra Information This motet was printed in Heinrich Glarean's 1547 treatise Dodecachordon to exemplify a great modal flexibility; specifically, the way it combines the dorian and phrygian modes. For this reason, Glarean attributed the motet to Josquin Des Prez, whose corpus already included two other settings of the De Profundis psalm. However, recent scholarly analysis points to Nicolas Champion, his younger contemporary, as the most likely author.

Misc. Comments

This piece survives in 12 sources, which include seven attributes to Josquin, and a single one to Champion (in Vienna MS 15941). Despite the numerous attributions, the New Josquin Edition, which includes it, labels it of questionable authenticity based on stylistic considerations including the imitation technique and the text setting.
