Arca_musarithmica.Syntagma1.Pinax10

Description

Sub-structures used by Arca_musarithmica to build Kircher's ark (bk II, p. 93): "Pro Metris Sapphicis". This pinax (s1p10) is for poetry in quatrains built of three 11-syllable lines followed by an Adonic five-syllable line. There are four columns, one for each successive line (but called "strophes"), where the fourth column is for the Adonic tag line.

There is only one RpermTable for the three 11-syllable columns, and a separate one for the Adonic column.

It may be used with tones I, II, III, IV, IX, and X.
