Editor: Gerhard Weydt (submitted 2021-09-01).   Score information: A4, 25 pages, 299 kB   Copyright: CPDL
Edition notes: The beginning seems to suggest a separation into two choirs, but this distinction fades away in the progress of the work.
The use of chiavette seems to indicate a transposition down a third or fourth, but the sound appears to be dumb and dull, hence the original pitch has been maintained.
