[+] Anderson, Gordon A. "A New Look at an Old Motet." Music and Letters 49 (January 1968): 18-20.

The tenor of the Latin motet Homo, mundi paleas from Wolfenbüttel 1099 is designated Et gaudebit, but the melody is actually Et florebit. Observance of this scribal error allows identification of the motet as a contrafactum of a French motet in the same manuscript, Chascun qui de bien amer.

Works: Homo, mundi paleas.

Sources: Chascun qui de bien amer.

Index Classifications: Polyphony to 1300
