 Manuscript post 1445 in the Trent codices 87 (copied 1433-45)

Description: Transcribed from the Trent manuscript tr87. At the bottom of the preceding manuscript’s page is written: “cantus sequens scilicet Sanctus est cantus anglicanus” (the next song, i.e. Sanctus, is an English song). The time signatures, notes’ values, accidentals and colourings are as in the manuscript, the coloured notes are “hemiolæ” and the perfect notes and rests have been dotted. 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 a double length body are maximæ. The “musica ficta” suggestions are in the MIDI and the MusicXML files.
