Description: Micyllus's Sylvarum libri quinque presents two poems under the title Confide et ama ("trust and love"), the motto of George of Austria (1505–1557), illegitimate son of Emperor Maximilan I and Prince-Bishop of Liège. The first, Confisus Domino, was set by Pinchon and by Lassus; Vivere vis recte is the second poem, which was also set by Wismes and Lechner. Gerarde only sets the first half of the poem. In the source, the quintus (A2) part is marked "Canon", but the resolution to the canon (B1) is not provided.
