Edition notes: Transposed up a fourth. The published edition of voices (SATTB) was likely intended to reach a wider audience. The nuns at Aleotti’s San Vito convent were known to play instruments to accompany or substitute for parts. For this reason, this transposition accommodates more women’s voices, and instruments may be considered to play the lower parts.
