Title: Kyrie Magne Deus (tr93) I
Manuscript post 1445 in the Trent codices 93
Description: A troped Kyrie transcribed from the Trent manuscript tr93. The Superius’ clef (C1) is clearly wrong and a Tenor (C7) clef would be the most obvious solution but, for musical reasons, we choose to keep the voice an octave higher. The time signature is missing; the “tempus perfectum” has been assumed from the context and the perfect notes and rests have been dotted. The notes' values and the colourings are as in the manuscript, the coloured notes are “hemiolæ”. The notes' values within the "ligaturæ" are as follows: the left upstemmed notes are semibreves - the unstemmed notes are breves - the right downstemmed note are longæ. The "musica ficta" suggestions are in the MIDI and MusicXML files.
