Abstract

Josquin's motets from the Ferrara and Condé periods are taken into account. The analytical considerations confirm that different resistances of the various tonal types to modal representation are to be found in these motets. Moreover, these different resistances appear to be generally in line with the ones noted in the work of later Renaissance composers. The question whether Josquin thought in modal terms while composing cannot positively be answered; but a modally oriented analytical approach to Josquin's music should be considered perfectly legitimate, because it was Josquin's tonal-organising usage that gave birth to Renaissance modal theory.
