'Lay VII' is part of the extensive cycle of the Machaut Transcriptions (ED 21070) in which Holliger studies the great 14th-century poet-musician in different levels of arrangement. The original Lay VII by Machaut, included in the appendix of the edition, has been handed down in monophonic notation only, according to the genre. In Holliger's version, this melody, divided in small sections, changes from part to part while the gaps resulting therefrom are filled with the remaining overhanging motif.
