See Envoi. the final section of a troubadour poem which sends the song out into the world. Poetically it often involves a shift of character; it may address the messanger or the audience instead of the loved one of previous sections, for instance. The envoy is a partial stanza and is sung to the last line(s) of the musical setting; therefore it ends with a clos cadence and forms a musical rhyme to the final stanza.
