Edition notes: Original key, and original note lengths, apart from 3/2 section. N.B. in bar 25 of Soprano I (Cantus), the van den Sigtenhorst Meyer edition has (equivalently) a minim on "e", followed by two minim rests. The Bibliotheque Nationale facsimile has a semibreve on "e", followed by a minim rest. The musical difference is minor, so I have stayed with the van den Sigtenhorst Meyer version.
