[+] Ward, John M. "Parody Technique in Sixteenth-century Instrumental Music." In Commonwealth of Music, in Honor of Curt Sachs, ed. Gustave Reese and Rose Brandel, 208-28. New York: Free Press, 1965.

Parody in sixteenth-century instrumental music is a variation device making use of a pre-existing, fully realized composition. Two types exist: one in which quotation and paraphrase are mixed but are presented in the same sequence as the model, and another in which thematic material is freely elaborated without regard to the structure of the model.
