Editor: James Gibb (submitted 2017-11-10).   Score information: A4, 3 pages, 48 kB   Copyright: CPDL
Edition notes: Transcribed from Recueil des morceaux de musique ancienne, Vol 6 (Joseph Napoléon Ney). Clefs modernised. Original note values. In the source, the second stave oscillates between alto and tenor clefs, whereas is should be alto throughout. In bar 13, the last two notes of the third stave are given as B, which is obviously wrong harmonically. I have changed them to C in this edition.
