General Information

Title: Sanctus
Composer: Johannes Brassart

Number of voices: 3vv   Voicing: ATT
Genre: SacredMass

Language: Latin
Instruments: A cappella

First published: post 1445 in the Trent codices 87

Description: Sanctus with two tropes transcribed from the Trent manuscripts tr87. The keys, time signatures, notes' values accidentals and colourings are as in the manuscript, the coloured notes are “hemiolæ”. The initial time signature is missing, the “tempus perfectum” has been assumed from the context and the perfect notes and rests have been dotted. The time change near the end of the Superius (tempus imperfectum cum prolatione maiore) is misleading: is not the PERFECT semibrevis that equals the former brevis, as usual, but is the IMPERFECT semibrevis instead. The notes' values within the "ligaturæ" are as follows: the left upstemmed notes are semibreves - the unstemmed notes are breves - the right downstemmed notes are longæ – the unstemmed notes with double length body are maximæ. The "musica ficta" suggestions are in the MIDI and MusicXML files.
