VII. a) CANZONE SACRA: VERGINE BELLA (Petrarch)
contralto solo died 1474
"Glorious Virgin, clothed in sun
And crowned with stars,
Thou who so pleased the divine Sun,
That he did hide in thee His light,
I am urged by love to sing of thee.
I do invoke thee, who hearest always
Him that crieth out with faith.
0 Virgin, if ever
The extreme misery of mankind
Inclined thee to pity, bend to my prayer:
Help me in my struggle,
Though I be but earth, and thou Queen of heaven."
b) DEPLORATION ON THE DEATH OF HIS
MASTER, OCKEGHEM Josquin des Prez

Fine singers of all nations,
Change your voices clear and high
To sharp cries and lamentations:
Your Ockeghem is dead. .
May he rest in peace. Amen."

And holds his long notes well;

He goes not to and fro,
But stays in his own place.."
