Je m'en vois/Tels a mout/OMNES
author of text

Perhaps more than any other, this piece conveys that feeling of time standing still which seems to lie at the heart of the motet idea. The Tenor is a simple and very short musical phrase, constantly repeated, in which the note F predominates. As a result the piece is almost one long, decorated chord of F.

from notes by Christopher Page 1990
