Edition notes: The source (MusicXML) file is zipped. Transcribed from the Trent manuscript tr88. The notes' values are as in the manuscript. There is only the text incipit of the verses. In the final of the Contra one mesure is missing and few other are not consistent with the other two voices (see the manuscript); this is my personal solution of the puzzle. 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.
