Misc. Comments

This tiento uses SS/BB counterpoint voicing in a way that suggests 'dos tiples' and/or 'dos bajos' with a manual that divides between middle C and C#. However, the upper voices often descend to middle C natural in a way that cannot be accidental (see measure 39 etc.). Whether it is intended to be performed on a divided keyboard, borrowing the middle C from the lower, or performed undivided is unknown. Wrshannon 20:25, 4 February 2017 (CET)
