[+] Dobbins, Frank. "Lassus--Borrower or Lender: The Chansons." Revue belge de musicologie 39-40 (1985-86): 101-57.

Although Lassus was familiar with the chansons of his immediate predecessors, he was not much influenced by their musical settings. Lassus' earlier pieces made a large impact on certain composers of the younger generation, but his later works, while showing greater literary sensitivity, were not generally adopted as models. An annotated listing of all of Lassus' 147 surviving chanson settings is provided, with commentary on each.
