Maistre Jhan: Pater noster/Ave Maria

The motet Pater noster/Ave Maria (SATTB) by Maistre Jhan in Treviso Cathedral Codice 36 could be an intended homage paid to Josquin. The tradition of combining the two texts and plainchants as parts of a motet had a great relevance on Northern Italy: Adrian Willaert, Gioseffo Zarlino or Jacquet de Mantua followed this tradition after Maistre Jhan.
