Petronian motet

DEFINITION

a motet which divides the breve into more than three shorter notes, following the notational innovations of Petrus de Cruce (fl. ca. 1290). Effectively, this results in a patter song in which the top voice sings as fast as it can, the motetus moves somewhat more slowly and the tenor seems to move in slow motion.
