    in : Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians, The New -, (NG), Second Edition (published in twenty-nine volumes in the year 2001), Edited by Stanley Sadie, Executive Editor John Tyrell, (2001) : 'De Rore seems to have sought employment at an Italian court, probably in the early 1540s. His secular motet for Cardinal Ippolito II d’Este, O qui populos, contains the plea ‘Cypriam gentem suscipe quaeso’. He also had connections with Guidubaldo della Rovere, Duke of Urbino, for whom he composed Cantiamo lieti and with Cristoforo Madruzzo, Cardinal of Trent, dedicatee of Quis tuos presul. From this period dates the six-voice motet on the text of the prodigal son newly appreciative of his father’s generosity, Nunc cognovi, Domine; addressed to an unknown patron, this piece has the witty ostinato ‘Fac me sicut unum ex mercenariis tuis’.'
