I thought they all had their little tweaks and stuff. Right? And who knows
which came first. Once upon a time, Avatar did tell me that these early
published pieces contain a lot of musical errors (probably typesetting
mistakes). Musicologists have all pretty much agreed on the typos, and they
fix them in modern editions. Maybe this explains why you¹re finding three
that are identical, but that don¹t quite match the original? They¹ve all
³stolen² from Arbeau and fixed the typos?
I have to confess that this is not my field at all, and I¹m completely
lacking in the patience to sit and compare each version against the other. I
just wanna play them! ;) But Katriana knows all about this stuff, thank
