General Information

Title: Ave virgo gratiosa
Composer: Jean Le Bouteiller

Number of voices: 4vv   Voicing: STTB
Genre: SacredMotet

Language: Latin
Instruments: A cappella

First published: 1534 in Motettorum, Book 1 (Pierre Attaingnant), no. 17
Description: The original clefs were G2, C2, C3, C4. Only two motets and four chansons by this French composer survive. Contratenor's first note in bar 38, although transcribed here in accordance with the source, should perhaps be a B rather than a D. A few sharps could optionally be added in cadential figures, e.g. A sharps and G sharp in the Tenor in bar 6, D sharp in the Superius in bar 11 and the Tenor in bar 38, and D sharps and C sharp in the Superius at the final cadence.
