    This piece by far, is a beautiful, full melody. It's a simple 3-part canon with only one difficult area. That area is the section which employs the ascending d harmonic minor scale starting on "A" and moving down to "F", then ascending all the way up to "D...

    " in harmonic form (with C#). I sang this song with a choir in SAT (Soprano, Alto, Tenor) form and it sounded wonderfully smooth and accurate. It isn't difficult at all to get a smooth and flowing sound this piece; due to the full, long, resonating notes. The key choice is excellent by the way! Overall a very good piece to introduce singers to the basic type of music used during the Renaissance.
