RELATED MANUSCRIPTS

First Treatise
Bergamo, Biblioteca Comunale Σ.4.37
In this manuscript, ff. 21r-31v contain most of the material of the first treatise in Bk, incorporated into a larger, otherwise apparently original treatise. This treatise opens with a newly written discussion of the gamut, the hexachords (with their properties and mutations), and the modes. The next section (beginning on f. 23r) is closely related to the passage in Bk that treats the species (see pp. 98-106); it is not a direct quotation of that material, however, although the definitions are the same. A brief paragraph at the end of this section contains definitions for conjunction and disjunction. Most of the remaining material of the first treatise then follows (beginning on f. 24v), preceded by the introduction (see p. 30) with its now inapplicable survey of the contents of the first three treatises of Bk. The material already quoted does not appear again, and there are numerous insertions and changes in the text. In particular, the following changes may be noted:
1. Much of the discussion of the intervals within the hexachord (gradus) is omitted (see p. 40)
2. Several additional rules of musica ficta have been added to the one on p. 44
3. The explanation of B-fa-B-mi (see p. 46) is quite different
4. At the beginning of the section on the coniunctae, the compiler has characterized himself as "frater A"
5. Textless musical examples have been provided for the last two coniunctae (see pp. 64-66)
6. The section on the coniuncta (sec. 4) concludes with several additional rules that are not in Bk
7. The mnemonic verses for the psalm tones are omitted (see p. 82).

The material borrowed from Bk ends at this point. The remainder of the Bergamo treatise (beginning on f. 30v) is new and
