Susanne un Jour II - Score and parts composed by Claude Le jeune (1528-1600). For 6 voices/instruments. Miscellaneous Music. Score and Parts. Published by London Pro Musica (MM.LPM0555).

The present setting of this piece is quite different from the 7-part one by the same composer already published in the present series (LPM 507), or indeed the 5-part one by Cipriano de Rore (LPM 522), in that it presents Lassus superius part in the tenor in the original note values. Because of the slowing down of the beat in the intervening period this has the effect of turning the melody into a kind of slow cantus firmus, as the remaining parts generally move in half the note values. The same composer's second version of Je suis desheritee (LPM 554) does the same thing.
