Title: JOSQUIN DES PRES' "MISSA D'UNG AULTRE AMER": A TRANSCRIPTION WITH ANALYSIS
Author: MERRILL, THOMAS GLEN
Degree: Master of Music thesis
Abstract: A modern transcription and analysis of Josquin Des Pres' Missa D'ung Aultre Amer based on the Ockeghem chanson, D'ung Aultre Amer (of another love), reveals Josquin's innovations in imitative technique. His extension of the prevailing cantus firmus technique to other voices indicates that the Missa D'ung Aultre Amer is an early form of what is later to be called parody technique. The substitution motet, Tu Solus Qui Facis Mirabilia, (You only, who do wonders), which replaces the Benedictus portion of the Ordinary in Missa D'ung Aultre Amer holds a unique place among Josquin's masses. The inclusion of the motet within the mass shows a liturgical connection to the period Josquin spent in Milan (c.1459-79), and aids in assigning a possible date to the work.
