Talk:Alma Redemptoris Mater (Josquin des Prez)
The marking 'SATB' leads to the view (hope, even!) that this might be for Soprano Alto Tenor and Bass. However, upon opening the pdf, we find it is set out for Superius, Altus, Tenor and Bass - not the usual interpretation of 'SATB'!
Further, after translating from the C clefs for 'SAT' one finds that all four parts start with the same four notes at the same pitch. In my view there is no way this piece is for Soprano Alto etc. The highest note in the 'S' part seems to be the F above middle C. So, it could be for ATTB or for TTBB. Probably best to mark it as ATTB as it isn't traditional male voice choir repertoire ;)
Another point. How many singers these days can sing from C clefs? The contributor could've used his time (and ours!) more constructively, in my view, by inputting to modern clefs.
Just my 2p or 3c worth!
