Inviolata (Jean Courtois)
- Editor: Mick Swithinbank (submitted 2018-01-06). Score information: A4, 10 pages, 78 kB Copyright: CPDL
- Edition notes: Original note values, modern clefs, transposed up a tone. As the voicing is two tenors, baritone and bass, the work could sound muddy without any transposition at all.
Composer: Jean Courtois
First published: 1532 in Motteti del Fiore primus liber cum quatuor vocibus (Jacques Moderne), no. 15
2nd published: 1534 in Motettorum, Book 4 (Pierre Attaingnant), no. 27
Description: Published in Attaignant's 4th book of motets without attribution, but according to Genevieve Bazinet's thesis 'Pierre Attaingnant's Encyclopedia of Sacred Music', the composer has been identified as Courtois, to whom the work is attributed in Moderne's first book of Motteti del Fiore.
