Title : Sic ego te dilegebam: Music, Homoeroticism, and the Sacred in Early Modern Europe [The motet "Planxit autem David," sometimes attributed to Josquin Desprez, can be read as expressing, in both text and music, a homosexual relationship between David and Jonathan; this would place the motet in the same context as the homoerotic myth of Ganymede and the depiction of Orpheus by Ovid as turning to the love of young men after his loss of Eurydice; the emphasis upon the name of Jonathan in this composition can be read as supporting such an interpretation; the Appendix presents the Latin text as set by Josquin Desprez along with an English translation].
