Title: Et incarnatus est
Composer: Francisco Valls
Number of voices: 8vv Voicing: SSAATTBB
Genre: Sacred, Canon
Instruments: A cappella
First published: 1742 in Mapa Armónico Práctico, no.
Description: In the original scores all 8 voices are set out on distinct staves. The AATT voices appear in one score and the SSBB voices in a further and separate score immediately underneath, so it may have been intended that the canon should be sung in either of those groups of voices as well as in 8 parts and, no doubt, in 4 voices SATB. "Trocado" indicates that the canon uses contrary motion.
