Edition notes: Transcribed from 1575 print. Original note-values. Some errors of the original print have been corrected. Quintus: Secunda pars, measure 51. The first minim is originally E. Altus: Prima pars, measure 46: original has F - G sharp. Secunda pars: measures 13-14: the original has a B flat breve, but the space before this breve is blank, even the lines of the staff. I interpreted it as a ligatura cum oppositate proprietate A - B flat. Measure 53: the first semibrevis is originally F sharp.
