Description: This piece may be found in a collection of broadsheets now held at the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek in Munich under the shelfmark 2 Mus.pr. 156. The page, which is undated, was printed by Kriegstein in Augsburg, probably in the 1540s. The voices are presented in table book format. For the first part of the piece, four of the voices share a stave, which is marked In Fuga singuli, post singula tempora bina (each in canon, after every two measures).
