Description: Source: Thesaurus Musicus ... 8 vocum, Berg & Neuber, Nuremberg, 1564. Curiously, the partbooks contained several errors which would have put the voices out of alignment, at the points indicated in this score. Well worth tracking down and correcting, as this work deserves a recommendation from the editor and performances from any interested ensemble.
