Edition notes: Transcribed from Palestrina Werke VI. Original note values. The Palestrina Werke edition has two equal choirs, but the piece is written for two unequal choirs, since the second Soprano sings with Choir I and the first Tenor sings with Choir II. We have arranged the voices accordingly.
