Byrd "Ave Verum Corpus" tuning example
Date: April 3, 2014
Continuing the studies in intonation begun several years ago, I've posted the first phrase of Byrd's Ave Verum Corpus with tuning markings. And a linked recording from the page. If my interpretation is correct, Byrd has intentionally raised the entire intonation by a comma on the word "corpus" ... he was a good Catholic, I think, and perhaps this is elevating the host in music?
