13Apr24: Completed 19 lute songs (out of 24) from Hortus Musarum, v. 2. These were difficult to figure out because the vocal part was separate from the lute part, and while the latter had bar lines, the former did not, so it was often hard to match the two up correctly. This was especially true where there were rhythmic errors in one part or the other. The lute songs, by Crécquillon, Sermisy, and others, are fashioned by a usually fairly literal transcription from the four-part versions, the bottom 3 parts being played on the lute.
