Remarks: This assertion is interesting on the point point of view of form. If we take into account that Sohier started his Christe on the material of 'Quae est ista quae proces sit', the second part of the model, we can assume that the first Kyrie quotes the whole first part of the song. 'Vidi speciosam'and 'cuius inaestimabilis'are built on the same soggetto, which start on a fifth can be considered to be found back in the cadential 'et lilia con valium'. Between these three sentences, several soggetti have been omited by Sohier: 'ascendentem...', 'de super rivos', 'et sicut dies', circumdabant'. I assert a New combination, for I assume Sohier has taken three sentences and made them into one. We could also think, taking the omission into consideration, that the sentences of the model are just one big fuga, broken by some new soggetti, and that this fuga has been transformed with amplification and change of voice role.
