Interestingly, the title line in the manuscript has 'Juan Cabanilles' inked-out and 'Pablo Bruna' written below in what appears to be the copyist's hand. Although this tiento is somewhat atypical for Cabanilles, to my ear I would be very surprised if it were composed by Bruna rather than Cabanilles. Wrshannon 17:13, 1 January 2014 (EST)
