Štěpán Kafka had recently found some interesting musical fragments at the Czech Museum of Silver in Kutná Hora, some of which he made available on his website www.cantica.kh.cz. Robert Mitchell was able to identify Alexander Agricola’s textless composition “Cecus non judicat de coloribus” on one of the them. This identification along with a reproduction of the fragment and a transcription was published on the blog site of the research project “Musical Life of the Late Middle Ages in the Austrian Region”: The Kuttenberg-Cecus. The fragments, however, comprise another folio from the same codex with notation on both sides: the tenor and bassus parts of a three-voice composition on its recto side and the cantus and bassus parts of the beginning of another three-voice composition on its verso side. Both pieces are untexted in the surviving notation, feature no incipits or titles and bear generic melodic and contrapuntal characteristics of polyphonic compositions from Agricola’s time (late 15th century). Since these pieces have not yet been identified or attributed, my question is: Can anyone identify the compositions behind these notational fragments?
Folio Cr: Tenor and bassus from the end of a piece
Folio Bv: Cantus and bassus from the beginning of a piece
