The majority of pieces in this volume show a strong melodic and rhythmic independence of voice, close in style to the contemporary French chanson; but there are also examples of pieces in the simpler, homorhythmic idiom of English descant. Votive antiphon and votive mass, or lady mass, were the main forms employed in the important early 15th-century repertoire of devotional and liturgical music for household use.
