Misc. Comments

  • Instrumentation designations are "soprano", "tenor", "tenor". Tags have been chosen according to the most probably combinations for the period.
  • "Carmen" is a Medieval/Renaissance word for a song or poem, and could also mean a tune, so this is a tune based on a "Panga Lingua". "Pange lingua" can refer to one of two hymns -- Pange Lingua Gloriosi Corporis Mysterium by Thomas Aquinas (ca.1225-1274) or Pange Lingua Gloriosi Proelium Certaminis, generally credited to Venantius Honorius Clementianus Fortunatus (ca.530-ca.609).
