According to Erwin Panofsky , this could be the likeness of Gilles Binchois Binchois was probably from Mons , the son of Jean and Johanna de Binche, who may have been from the nearby town of Binche. Nothing is known about Gilles until , when he became an organist at the church of Ste. Waudru in Mons. In went to live in Lille. Around this time he may have been a soldier in the service of either the Burgundians or the English Earl of Suffolk , as indicated by a line in the funeral motet composed in his memory by Ockeghem.

Binchois composed De plus en plus around , while under the service of William Pole, and earl of Suffolk. The earliest appearance of this piece was in Italy, indicating a wide distribution of his music despite a court-centric career. Translation of text More and more renews again my sweet lady, noble and fair, my wish to see you. It gives me the very great desire I have to hear news of you. Do not heed that I hold back, for always you are the one whom I want to follow in every way. More and more renews again, my sweet lady, noble and fair, my wish to see you.
Alas, if you were cruel to me, I would have such anguish in my heart that I would want to die. But this would do you no wrong, while supporting your cause. The text is a love poem in the tradition of courtly love, or fine amour. The Refrain A has three lines while the refrain B has two lines. The music in its entirety is heard in the first refrain.
The same music is also used for the couplets. The full refrain text of both AB is only heard at the beginning and the end. The cantus or the top-most melody dotted figures, syncopations, and runs, moves quicker than the tenor and contratenor.
The crossing of rhythms to produce a hemiola effect is limited only to the tenor and the contratenor, as seen in measures 3, , and Much of cantus declaims the text syllabically, with a fluid and arching motion, while the two voices form a 2-part counterpoint in sixths and thirds.
The dissonances appear in a syncopated rhythm before the second to last note. The harmony is consonant, as seen in the opening, with skips limited to the triads. A notable unpredicted final is the cadential note in D, the final note of the piece, at the end of section B, where earlier candences hinted at C or G. The score can be accessed here No. The tenor and contratenor in this rondeau are less active, holding just one note for the duration of the measure.
The melismatic runs employed by the cantus are less synchopated in rhythm, and are fairly equal in length at the end of each stanza. Observations Edit Binchois is the most important composer of the Burgundy court, and he was particularly esteemed for his chanson. This piece was chosen because the fluidity and unpredictable cantus and the juxtaposition of the tenor and contratenor. I find the unique approach to the tonal centre of this piece particularly interesting.
This piece truly expresses his style of music and epitomizes the concept of a Burgundian tradition in music.
