- Edition notes: at original pitch for ATTTBB. Editorial accidentals (the modern conception of musica ficta) reflect what singers in Josquin’s time would have done when they adhered solely to their training. This stands in sharp contrast to many modern editors’ approaches to Josquin, his contemporaries, and successors, which are typified by pre-conceived ideas of how a work should sound.
