Josquin "Ave verum corpus", modern edition, intonation markings
Date: August 29, 2013
Some of the participants here may know of my researches into intonation for new choral works: recently I spent a great deal of time with a Josquin work, to see if the same ideas would work for much older music.
Free pdf edition of Part I of Josquin's five part "Ave verum corpus" now available from my Hartenshield Music website.
(Another version, with old notation, is available from cpdl.org, by C. H. Giffen, and I consulted his edition a great deal.)
I tried to explain as clearly as possible the intonation markings used, in an appendix, and footnoted places where the intonation implied musica ficta.
And a tuned recording at http://www.hartenshield.com/Josquin_Ave_verum_a5_part1.mp3
Anyone that tries this with their choir, I'd love to hear about it!
ps I should be adding part 2 and part 3 shortly; they'll be spelled as above with 2 or 3 instead of 1.
