Description

Sub-structures used by Arca_musarithmica to build Kircher's ark. This pinax (s2p5) contains four columns for successive strophes. Each contains pairs of four-voice vperms and four-voice rperms.

Kircher intends this for meters with nine and ten syllable lines (p. 116), with the paradigm being Amant venena parricida.

"PINAX V. Melothesiae [-as?] Floridae & artificiosae Musarithmos continens. Pro metris Enneasyllabis & Decasyllabis."

This pinax is for toni (tones) 1, 2, 3, 4, 9, and 10.
