Composer: Anonymous

Number of voices: 3vv   Voicing: STB

Language: Latin
Instruments: A cappella

 Manuscript post 1445 in the Trent codices 89
Description: Transcribed from the Trent manuscript tr89. The time signatures, notes' values, accidentals and colourings are as in the manuscript except that the perfect breves and semibreves are dotted. Where the time signature is missing a "tempus" is assumed accordingly with the context. The coloured notes are in "proportio sesquialtera" (3 vs. 2). The polyphonic settings are on the even verses only, the integration with the gregorian odd verses is supposed. The 8th verse is for 4 voices with two "Superius" voices. There is a supplementary final verse "ad placitum". The notes within the "ligaturæ" are always semibreves.
