Edition notes: In the original printing, the high choir is marked "secundo choro", whilst the low is marked "primo". I have swapped the choirs round and placed them in ascending pitch order.

Description: Though all parts have text underlay, the partial instrumentation given reveals a likely method of performance to be with only 2 voices, with other parts performed by instruments. The instrumentation is not part of the original Gardano edition and has been written in ink on the margins of some of the partbooks. No instrumentation for the lower choir is given, but trombones and/or dulcians would be probable.
