PES MOTETS AND RONDELLUS
Whatever their way to it, the English did develop their own “insular” ways of inflecting French genres of literate music. One of those genres was the motet. The English loved to use sequence melodies as tenors, as in the famous “Balaam” motet (Ex. 11-7a), which adopts for this purpose a versicle from the Epiphany sequence, Epiphanium Domino, that happily incorporates an internal repeat into each of its repeated strophes (Ex. 11-7b).
