Description

 

 

13th-century motets built on a pre-existing tenor exemplified the musical avant garde of the era. Anonymous 4 combines sacred motets devoted to Mary and secular motets that praise earthly ladies, Marion, Marot, Marotele, and their amorous sisters. Monophonic pieces upon which these motets are based include trouvère songs, chansons pieuses and plainchant masterpieces.
