Quand j’apperçoy ton beau chef jaunissant
Supplement musical to the 1552 edition of Les amours de P de Ronsard Vandomoys, ensemble le cinquiesme de ses Odes, 1552
Another of the early pieces from the 1552 edition of the Amours. Like others, a largely homophonic style loosening up a bit at the end: it works well with the larger choir used in the recording, which is of the opening stanza only. There are some nice touches but a distinctly looser marriage of text and music than in the later madrigalistic style of Lassus.
