Mirandas parit haec urbs Florentina

probable author of text

Mirandas parit is in cantilena style, characterized by two high voices that intertwine beguilingly above a freely composed tenor that is not based on chant. It praises the women of Florence, and the second half singles out a beautiful maiden whose identity remains unknown.
