MelodyAn almost identical melodic profile is recorded for the two strophes with adaptations to accommodate the varying syllable count as follows: in line v, a tractulus (1b) is omitted before the caesura with the reduction to a five-syllable half-line; in line vii, a pes (2a) is added at the third syllable (ex) with the expansion to a six-syllable half-line, and a virga (1a) is added immediately after the caesura with the expansion to a seven-syllable half-line.
