Title: Kyrie II
Composer: Nicolas Merques
Manuscript post 1445 in the Trent codices
Description: Transcribed from the Trent manuscript tr92. The keys, notes’ values, accidentals and colourings are as in the manuscript, the coloured notes under the square slur are in “proportio sesquialtera” (3 vs. 2). The time signature is missing in all the voices, the “tempus perfectum” has been assumed from the context. In the “perfaulxbourdon” section the Contra is derived from the Superius a fourth below. The notes' values within the "ligaturæ" are as follows: the left upstemmed notes are semibreves - the unstemmed notes are breves – the right downstemmed note is a longa. The “musica ficta” suggestions are in the MIDI and the MusicXML files.
