Vocal notation


This second setting is placed on the vihuela a tone lower than the preceding version, but the comments pertaining to va164 apply equally to this version. Pujol’s edition transcribes this piece for a vihuela in E rather than in G, so it appears to be a fourth lower than the previous version. In terms of hand positions, however, it is simply a tone lower.
