Edition notes: Transposed a tone higher, Altus parts notated in treble clef, otherwise identical to CPDL #65661. This is probably the optimal pitch for modern voices — performers who prefer to read a ‘flat’ key signature for 16th-century polyphony may prefer to use either the original-pitch edition (CPDL #65661 below) or minor-third-higher edition (CPDL #65664 above) and adjust performance pitch accordingly.

Edition notes: At original notated pitch (for SSAATBB or SSTTTBB, with an additional Tenor part in the second Agnus Dei), Altus parts notated in sub-octave treble clef. Transcribed and edited from the original printed source. Suggested intonations for the Gloria and Credo included. Original note values retained (see Editorial Notes for further detail on mensuration/tempo considerations — the above MP3 files provide a guide to the editor's suggested tempi and tempo relationships in each movement).
