Musica Dei donum

author of text

Perhaps more common than cantus firmus treatment at this time is the taste for moralizing texts, shown by Musica Dei donum. Appropriately enough given his influences and direct contemporaries, this text is set by Clemens non Papa and Lassus as well as Vaet: an apposite indication of Vaet’s stature as a composer.

from notes by Stephen Rice © 2009

À l’époque, le goût pour les textes moralisateurs était peut-être plus répandu que le traitement en cantus firmus, comme le montre Musica Dei donum. Vaet ne fut pas le seul à mettre ce texte en musique: Clemens non Papa et Lassus en firent autant—juste signe de son envergure de compositeur et chose assez logique si l’on considère ses influences et ses contemporains directs.

Möglicherweise verbreiteter als die Cantus firmus Behandlung zu der Zeit war das Interesse an moralisierenden Texten, wie etwa Musica Dei donum. Dieser Text wurde von Clemens non Papa, Lasso und auch Vaet vertont, was den Status, den Vaet als Komponist innehatte, deutlich macht.
