Description

Sub-structures used by Arca_musarithmica to build Kircher's ark. This pinax (s2p2) contains four columns for successive strophes. Each contains pairs of four-voice vperms and four-voice rperms. Kircher intends this for "Iambic, Euripidaeic, and Hectasyllabic meters" (p. 106), with the paradigm being Ave Maris stella.

PINAX II. "Musarithmi Melothesias Floridae siue Artificiose pro metris Iambicis, Euripedaeis, Hectasyllabis"

He does not give any limitations of tones.
