Absalon fili mi
composer
author of text

Absalon fili mi, a meditation on David’s lament, is perhaps Josquin’s best known work and has been long held to be a classic example of his mature style. Its authorship, however, is now uncertain, and Joshua Rifkin has proposed Pierre de la Rue (c.1460-1518) as a possible composer.
