Description: A “sequentia” for the Assumption of the Virgin Mary transcribed from the Trent manuscript tr89. The time signatures, notes' values, accidentals and colourings are as in the manuscript. The coloured notes are in "proportio sesquialtera" (3 vs. 2). The polyphonic setting is on the even verses only, they are to be sung “alternatim” with the Gregorian odd verses. The notes' values within the ligaturæ are as follows: the left upstemmed notes are semibreves - the unstemmed notes are breves - the right downstemmed notes are longæ. The "musica ficta" suggestions are in the MIDI and MusicXML files.
