Footnotes

Line 6:

The intended synaeresis in cobiiçar is clear from the musical underlay, where the word is assigned just three notes implying three syllables: .o + .ron + .o in [E] and .o + .o + .o in [To].

Footnotes

E1:

The flats are missing from [E] here and at E3, but both are obviously necessary from comparison of repeated phrases and for overall consistency.

E2:

This stave has two clefs; fortunately, their positioning is consistent.

E3:

See E1.

Links to the Oxford database are provided with the kind permission of the project team. When planning a concert or recording, I would recommend that you use (and credit) my more pragmatic texts and supporting materials in the preparation of your performance, but that you request permission from the Oxford database team to reproduce (and credit) their own critically edited texts in your programme or liner notes, as these adhere to stricter criteria that keep them closer to the original sources, and undoubtedly have the greater academic authority.

Very slow5012:19
Slow1006:09
Medium1504:06
Fast2003:04
Very fast2502:27

These are very approximate total times for a full sung (or spoken) performance of all stanzas with all repeats of the refrain. Note that the speed is in average syllables per minute, and no particular mensural interpretation is assumed. More ornamented music will reduce the syllabic speed considerably. Remember also to add time for instrumental preludes, interludes and postludes.
