Editor: Willem Verkaik (submitted 2015-04-22).   Score information: Letter, 16 pages, 860 kB   Copyright: CPDL
Edition notes: Transposed up a minor third from original F. All accidentals are "ficta". Note the remarkable ending of "Quia fecit…". In bar 105-106 the Contratenor ends with a minor seventh to a major third in bass position.
Error.gif Possible error(s) identified. Error summary: The impossible inversions in :Quia fecit" can be avoided by reading 'CT1' an octave higher, the reading in CMM Works
