Josquin was renowned for his Marian music and this piece is a particularly special example of his work in the genre. The text forms an acrostic of IOSQUIN DesPREZ and the Tenor sings an 3 note ostinato to the syllables La Mi La (interpreted as the solmisation of the vowels in Maria). Each section is a faster tempi than the preceding one – with the Tenor note values also diminishing – and it builds to an exciting climax.
