Talk:Pastores dicite (Cristóbal de Morales)

The correction mentioned in the tenor for bar 51 I believe refers to the bass part as there is no E in the tenor part at all. However, I would question whether the correction is indeed valid. Moving the bass resolution to D in the next meadure creates a strange chordal progression that is not common to Morales and is not seen elsewhere in this piece. sustaining the Eb for the whole of m51 gives Eb maj on beat 3 and Cm on beat 4 with leading tone in the Soprano...making the A suspension (even though passing tone) oddly out of place here. Of course composition was not verticle, but still this would be an odd cadence.

The correction to m91 & m92 is clearly due to a typo. The E in both measures should be D. -Paul Marchesano
