- Edition notes: at original pitch. This work owes much to Josquin’s six-part Praeter rerum seriem, particularly in its mensural scheme. Unlike Josquin, Lusitano loosens his grip on the overarching triple time (O2; three breves to the “bar”) in the first part, but it seemed wise to show the original time signature with the addition of some superimposed re-barring for the Superius primus.
- Editorial accidentals (the modern conception of musica ficta) reflect what 16th-century singers would have done when they adhered solely to their training. This stands in sharp contrast to many modern editors’ approaches to the music of this period which are typified by pre-conceived ideas of how a work should sound. Many of the most striking dissonances in this edition have parallels in the organ works of Hans Buchner (1483-1538).
