28 Psalms (1549)

Premiere livre contenant XXVIII pseaulmes de David traduictz en rithme francoise par Clément Marot,  à quatre parties, en quatre livres (DuChemin, 1549) [JJ448a] F:Pn Rés. Vmc. 48 (3) (S); F:Om Rés C 3459 (C, B); Tenor from Beringen brothers, Pseaulmes cinquante, Lyon 1548 (LY48).

The 28 Psalms mark the first music publishing venture by Parisian printer Nicolas Du Chemin, and comes at the time of Janequin’s move from Angers to Paris.  No complete copy of this work exists, but the missing tenor part is without any question identical with the melodies published by the Beringen brothers in Lyon in 1548 and 1549. (This is true for all the settings except Psalm 43, where Janequin has placed the melody in the superius.  Consequently, the tenor line in Psalm 43 below is a reconstruction.) The psalm settings of 1549 are discussed in Chapter 29 of Clément Janequin: Life and Works.  See also: “28 Psalms of 1549: notes on the transcriptions.”
