General Information

Title: Missa La sol fa re mi
Composer: Josquin des Prez
Lyricist:

Number of voices: 4vv   Voicing: SATB
Genre: SacredMass

Language: Latin
Instruments: A cappella

First Published: 1502 in Missarum Josquin liber primus, no. 2.

Description: The solmization syllables that provide the overriding motif of the mass are in imitation of the words "Laisse faire moy" or perhaps "Lesse faire a mi" (Let me take care of it), reportedly said to Josquin by "an unidentified magnate known for his procrastinating ways" (Grove) when Josquin requested something.
