Title: Nativitas gloriosæ virginis
Composer: Nicolas Merques
Description: “Antiphona in Nativitate B. Mariæ Virginis” transcribed from the Trent manuscript tr92. The keys, notes’ values and accidentals are as in the manuscript. The Contra has been derived from the Superius following the Tenor’s prescription “per faulx bourdon” (a fourth below). The time signature is missing in all the voices, the “tempus perfectum” has been assumed from the context. The notes' values within the "ligaturæ" are semibreves. The “musica ficta” suggestions are in the MIDI and the MusicXML files.
