Josquin's celebrated 3 voice setting of the traditional Gregorian communion hymn (Liber Usualis, p.1856) paraphrases the chant in the middle voice. Verses 1 & 3 of the hymn are duos that unfold as single long-breathed phrases. Verses 2 & 4 repeat the music of the first 2 verses with the addition of flowing counterpoint in the added 3rd voice making up delicate trio passages. The 5th verse provides a suitable culmination for all three voices as they join for the final supplication: O dulcis! O pie! O Jesu fili Virginis Mariae. The song-like intimacy of this setting and its quiet spritual intensity reflects Josquin's northern heritage while its bright scoring and clear-cut phrasing suggests the influence of the time he spent in Italy.
