Description: For St, John Evangelist, transcribed from the Trent manuscripts tr87. The keys, time signatures, notes' values, accidentals and colourings are as in the manuscript. The coloured notes are “hemiolæ”, the perfect notes and rests have been dotted and ties have been used for the notes’ values that cannot be exactly represented. 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 unstemmed note with double length body is a maxima. The "musica ficta" suggestions are in the MIDI and MusicXML files.

Fortis cum quævis actio
Rerumque firma pactio
A Deo gerant processum,
Nos decet ad hoc tendere,
Christo laudes impendere,
Omne per cor indefessum.
Actio specialiter
Quod legia moraliter
Iam incepit novum esse.
Ut eius sit duratio,
Expedit flagitatio.
Pariter et est necesse
Reginæ castimoniæ
Et paris alimoniæ,
Iohannis Evangelistæ
Nostraque hæc petitio
Ut non audiri vitio
Vacet Psallemus choristæ.
