Description: Processional Ascension hymn transcribed from the Trent manuscript tr88. The time signatures, notes' values and colourings are as in the manuscript. The coloured notes are in "proportio sesquialtera" (3 vs. 2). The notes' values within the ligaturæ are as follows: the left upstemmed notes are "semibreves" - The unstemmed notes are "breves" - The right downstemmed notes are "longæ". The text (1st verse) is underlaid only to the Superius while the 3rd and the 5th verse are added at the bottom of the page, perhaps suggesting the gregorian melody for the even verses. The “musica ficta” suggestions are in the MIDI and the MusicXML files
