Editor: Simon Biazeck (submitted 2020-10-21).   Score information: A4, 11 pages, 242 kB   Copyright: CPDL
Edition notes: Cue-sized and cautionary accidentals are editorial. Chant sections are editorial and restore the Ponnius (liquescent torculus) at the end of each chant section for verbum and Sancto. The missing Tenor part has been reconstructed from the chant source. Voice-part nomenclature is editorial and uses the Latin forms of English names familiar to Tudor musicians.
