    Manuscript post 1445 in the Trent codices 89, no. 89-072
Description: Transcribed from the Trent manuscript tr89. The notes' values, accidentals and colourings are as in the manuscript except that the perfect breves and the imperfect longæ in "tempus perfectum" are dotted and ties are used for notes’ values that cannot be exactly represented. The initial time signature is missing: the “tempus perfectum” is assumed from the context. The groups of coloured notes with minimæ are in "proportio sesquialtera" (3 vs. 2), otherwise they are hemiolæ. The notes' values within the "ligaturæ" are as follows: the left upstemmed notes are semibreves - the unstemmed notes are breves - the right downstemmed notes are longæ – the unstemmed double length bodied notes are maximæ. The text is slightly different from the canonical one.
