Edition notes: Note values halved; final longs retained.
Cue-sized and cautionary accidentals are cautionary.
Part nomenclature as per the source, i.e. Bassus Primus as the lowest voice.
Ordinal number adjectives Primus, Secundus etc. have been abbreviated with Roman numerals.
Owing to the date of the collection (1564) and scribes’ habits of “correcting” harmony in the music of previous generations, several accidentals are assumed erroneous and have been suppressed.
