Description: Part of the Sacræ Cantiones Liber Secundus, whose sextus and basses part books are lost. The quintus is marked "in canon diapason et diapente". The first canon is resolved by Gesualdo in the altus and Joop Voorn's edition (like Stravinsky's) assigns the second to the sextus, leaving the bassus to be freely reconstructed.
