Title: Gloria - Spiritus et alme
Description: Gloria with the trope "Spiritus et alme" transcribed from the Trent manuscripts tr87 and tr88. The keys, time signatures, notes' values, colourings and accidentals are as in the manuscript. The initial time signature is missing: the "tempus perfectum" has been assumed by the context, the perfect notes and rests have been dotted and ties have been used for the notes' values that cannot be exactly represented. Two sections are for four voices and several sections are for a boys' choir (pueri). 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 "musica ficta" suggestions are in the MIDI and MusicXML files.
