Links to the Oxford database are provided with the kind permission of the project team.
When planning a concert or recording, I would recommend that you use (and credit) my more pragmatic texts and supporting
materials in the preparation of your performance, but that you request permission from the Oxford database team to
reproduce (and credit) their own critically edited texts in your programme or liner notes, as these adhere to
stricter criteria that keep them closer to the original sources, and undoubtedly have the greater academic authority.

Estimated performance times
Average syllables / min.
These are very approximate total times for a full sung (or spoken) performance of all stanzas with all repeats of the refrain.
Note that the speed is in average syllables per minute, and no particular mensural interpretation is assumed.
More ornamented music will reduce the syllabic speed considerably. Remember also to add time for instrumental preludes,
interludes and postludes.
