Misc. Comments

Publication in Glareanus's Dodecachordon, 1547, fully respecting ancient Greek Sapphic metre, but only partly the solmization syllables, for which this hymn is famous. I add a reconstruction of the piece respecting all solmization, and the original plainchant, possibly by Guido of Arezzo, ca 1000.
