Alice V. Clark; Listening to Machaut's Motets. Journal of Musicology 1 January ; 21 4 : — In a significant number of his motets, Guillaume de Machaut uses melodic repetition to provide audible cues to their talea structure. He further breaks or alters that repetition in order to call attention to final talea statements, thereby providing a sounding clue to the motet's end. The use of this technique in a genre well known for its intellectual complexities seems to show a special concern for the unprepared listener, a concern that is less clearly manifested in the work of other motet composers in 14th-century France.
This has implications both for how we see Machaut in relation to his contemporaries and for how we may approach his motets today.

Jared C. Journal of Music Theory 1 October ; 54 2 : — Building initially upon Sarah Fuller's work, the proposed schema introduces a more nuanced approach to categorizing the intervallic content of consonant and dissonant sonorities. Moreover, by calling attention to the outer voices of certain sonority types, the classification highlights salient structural and aural differences. A systematic study of sonority usage in Machaut's motets also reveals his preference for particular combinations of intervals over others.
