    - p.III : 'Particularly striking in these early works is the skill with which Rore often illustrates the pictorial or expressive features of the text by the so-called musical figures. Figures of hypotyposis are easily recognised, for instance in the setting of the words pacifica (Beatus homo, bars 89-91), in curribus (Exaudiat me Dominus, bars 110-116: Circulatio, from the turning wheels), eadem lumina (Hesperice cum laeta, bars 90-92: the two eyes correspond to the Quintus-Bassus duet). '

    - p.III : 'Effective use is made of the juxtaposition of high and low tonal levels, for instance in bars 13 3 ff. of the motet Beatus homo, or at the words eruperunt abyssi, where the soprano descends suddenly into the plagal reaches of what has hitherto been an authentic mode. In the following section et nubes rore concrescunt, the opening imitation moves again within the limits of the authentic mode, though it obviously prefers its higher notes.'
