  • (Posted 2006-12-15)  CPDL #13254:        (Sibelius 2)
Editor: Jonathan Goodliffe (submitted 2006-12-15).   Score information: A4, 15 pages, 98 kB   Copyright: CPDL
Edition notes: Equal bar lengths (4/2) applied throughout, eliminating irregular bar length of 6/2 at bar 20 and half way through what in this edition is bar 24. First note appears to be missing at beginning of bar 4, 2nd soprano part in first choir: crotchet (quarter note) D added. Not clear whether first note, bar 28 second choir tenor is D or E. First 2 notes, bar 31, 1st soprano, 1st choir look like crotchets but are read as quavers (eighth notes) to fit in the bar.

Description: Facsimile manuscript including this score published by Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Cientificas. Score included as an example, with another motet "Beata quae credidisti", of "musica desatada y libre" ("loose and free music"). One of two settings of "Beatam me dicent" in the "Mapa". The other, to a slightly different text, is also available on CPDL. Facsimile unclear in places (especially bars 19 and 20, first choir) owing to poor reproduction and ink apparently penetrating the paper from the obverse side of each page.
