Description: Motet in two parts

This motet by Mouton was the basis for a number of parody works by later composers, including parody masses by Morales and Willaert as well as motets by Crecquillon, Pedro de Cristo and Giovanni Croce (the latter two motets being available at CDPL).

It was so popular in its day that it was sung everywhere from the Sistine Chapel to Guatemalan frontier missions.
