Jacob Clemens non Papa – Frais et Gaillard

 

Frais et Gaillard, first appeared in print in Pierre Attaingnant’s Dixiesme livre contenant XXVIII chansons nouvelles a quatre parties 1541. It was one of the most widely used pieces found in division manuals with at least nine versions surviving today.

 

These backing tracks are compatible with divisions by:

dalla Casa (two versions from Il vero modo)

Bassano

 

The accompaniment takes the form of an organ playing the bottom four vocal parts, leaving the top part (‘Superius’) to be ornamented.

Performance notes:

  • The accompaniment part follows the stated tempo throughout with a slight retardation before the final note; there are no other tempo deviations.
  • Notes have been added to the part to help the performer maintain tempo; these are limited to subdivisions of long notes and occasional added bass notes.
