De Plus en Plus se Renouvelle performed by the Ensemble Gilles Binchois

So far you have become familiar with similarities and differences between full and void mensural notation. As you already have experienced in previous steps it is always convenient to listen to a musical piece before you start to transcribe it.

As preparation to the next transcribing step you can now listen to the rondeau De Plus en Plus se Renouvelle by Gilles des Bins dit Binchois performed by the Ensemble Gilles Binchois under the direction of Dominique Vellard. The ensemble sings after the manuscript Madrid, Real Biblioteca del Monasterio, V.III.24, [Escorial A], fol. 39v–[40r].
