Editor: Bert Schreuder (submitted 2022-06-03).   Score information: A4, 19 pages, 366 kB   Copyright: CPDL
Edition notes: Transcribed at original pitch, note values halved. This is one of the pieces on which Lowinsky based his theory about a "secret chromatic art". Though his theory was not really accepted by his collegues, I decided to include his version in this edition; it follows after the 'natural' version.

Original text and translations

Qui consolabatur me recessit a me
quaero quod volui et non invenio
fundent oculi mei lacrimas
quia repletus sum amaritudine.

He that was comforting me departed from me
I am looking for what I wanted and I do not find it
my eyes splash tears
because I am filled with bitterness.
