Description: An Easter processional hymn by Venantius Fortunatus transcribed from the Trent manuscript tr88. The notes' values are as in the manuscript.. The time signature is missing in all the voices: the "tempus perfectum" is assumed. The middle voice is derived from the Superius (a 4th below) following the prescription "Faulx bourdon" at the Tenor. The text of the 1st (to be repeted after each verse and with a puzzling alternative final) and the 2nd verse is underlaied to the Superius, while the successive three verses are written at the bottom of the page. For the full text and the English translation see below the second external link. The notes' values within the "ligaturæ" are as follows: the left upstemmed notes are semibreves. The "musica ficta" suggestions are in the MIDI and MusicXML files.
