Description: Sources: MS Capp. Giulia XII.4 & Capp. Sist. 17 (with occasional reference to Capp. Sist. 20). Even though there are three sources, they are not very legible, and required considerable effort and some guesswork to interpret. However, what emerges is a very worthwhile, sonorous setting.
