Description: A “sequentia” for the Assumption of the Virgin Mary transcribed from the Trent manuscript tr93. The time signatures, notes' values and colourings as in the manuscript. The coloured notes are in “proportio sesquialtera” (3 vs. 2).The Contra has the “cantus firmus” (traditional melody). The polyphonic setting is on the even verses plus the first one only, suggesting to sing the missing verses on the Gregorian melody. The notes' values within the ligaturæ are as follows: the left upstemmed notes are semibreves - the unstemmed notes are breves. The "musica ficta" suggestions are in the MIDI and MusicXML files.
