Edition notes: From Portugaliae musica, volume 27, edited by Luis Pereira Leal, published by the Celeste Gulbenkian Foundation, Lisbon, 1976. We have lowered the notation a tone, reduced the time values by half, and provided the translation. To correct an apparent error in the Gulbenkian edition, we have added a half-note B-flat to the soprano part in measures 25-26, shortened the soprano whole-rest in 27 to a half, and moved a half-rest in the bass part from measure 28 to measure 26. Printed by John Hetland and The Renaissance Street Singers.
