    Manuscript post 1445 in the Trent codices, tr87, no. 87-205
Description: A Blessed Virgin Mary hymn transcribed from the Trent manuscript tr87. The time signatures, notes' values and colourings are as in the manuscript, the perfect notes are dotted. The coloured are in "proportio sesquialtera" (3 vs. 2). The 3rd voice is puzzling: it's clearly an added voice, alternative to the 2nd voice but with also several conflicting mesures with the 1st one, moreover it's not always readable. Its use with or without changes is left to the performer's judgement. 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.
