Title: Quid non ebrietas

Composer: Adrian Willaert

Date of request: 2004-02-28

Requested by: Benjamin Filippone

Additional notes: This is a well known motet that Willaert wrote in the midst of the 16th century debates about temperament and tuning. It is an avante-garde work with a lot of chromaticism, and was meant to expose the limits of mean-tone intonation.

Status: Requested
