General Information

Title: O
Composer: Anonymous

Number of voices: 3vv   Voicing: STT
Genre: SacredMotet

Language: None

First published: post 1445 in the Trent codices, tr87

Description: A Ballade transcribed from the Trent manuscript tr87. The keys, notes' values and the accidental and are as in the manuscript, as well as the parallel fifths between the Discantus and the Contratenor. The time signature is missing in all the voices, the “tempus perfectum” is assumed from the context and the perfect notes and a perfect rest are dotted. As text there is only an “O” letter at the beginning of the Discantus. The notes' values within the ligaturæ are semibreves. The "musica ficta" suggestions are in the MIDI and MusicXML files.
