Edition notes: transcribed from original print, Mensurstrich layout, original note values and keysignature, musica ficta clearly marked. The Bassus part was originally notated in the F3 clef, not F4 as shown, and this in conjunction with the other clefs would imply performance at a pitch somewhat below A440. - Mick Swithinbank (talk) 08:05, 29 January 2014 (UTC)
