A vous douce debonnaire

A number of motet voices survive, detached from the motets to which they belong, and set down as free-standing secular songs. Here we have taken the Motetus of a two-part motet and present it as an independent song, first as it survives in a motet, and then with editorial ornaments based upon what can be deduced about thirteenth-centry ornamentation from musical and theoretical sources.
