Example 12 Anon

Here is Example 12 an Anonymous Rondeau ‘Passerose de biaute pure et fine’ which is a really clever Ars Subtilior piece incorporating a Contra Tenor line which is a Canon at on and a half times slower than the Tenor. ie if the Tenor has a note worth 2 beats the Contra Tenor has one at 3 beats etc… All of this goes to create and otherworldly sound world. Enjoy These 15 videos are the examples at the back of a book by Nigel Wilkins, called One Hundred Ballades, Rondeaux and Virelais recently read by me.
