130 De Poematum Cántû


ut vcterum in reducendis ad certara quantita-
tem singulis syllabis imitentur diligentiam. Re-
vocandi quoque sunt pedes metrici, quibus.pe-
nitus hodierna destituitur musica , si diíponde-
um &c tribrachyn solos cxceperis , quorum hic
mensura quadrata, alter tripla vulgo dicta ex-
primitur. Et tamen hi pedes non benejungun-
tur, cum prior adeo sit tardus & piger, ut penc
immobilis videatur -, alter tam velox & volubi­
lis, ut nulla ex eo facta olim fuerlnt carmina, nisi in
choris Satyrorum, quibus nempe celeres istorum
motus significarentur. Mediae itaque meníure de-
lunt in hodierna musica, veluti iambi, trochaei ,
paeones, Cretici, & caeteri, ipsique quin etiam ana-
padti & spondei. Frustra enim laborant qui Sc hos,
& carteros pedes ad vulgarem quadratam referunt
mensuram, quamvis enim effici possit, ut hac rati-
one tempora quadammodo constent, motuum ta­
men formx in arsi & thesi non conveniunt. Ne
vulgarem triplam quidem, quadrato possis inclu-
dere plausui, quin ilico ejusvirtus evanescat, ut
jam antea monuimus. Istud itaque imprimiste-
nendum, non posle plausuum rationem immuta-
ri, quin simul immutetur cantus. Si quis heroicos
aut iambicos senarios, qui utrique sex constant pe-
dibus, sex etiam absolvat plausibus, longe alia can­
tus emerget forma, quam si quis eosdem veríus ,
conjungendo,more Graecorum, duos pedes,tribus
absolvat plausibus. Eadem est ratio in caeteris car-
minum generibus,quorum cantus si ad simplicium
pedum exigatur mensuram, longe alium habebunt
inceslum, longeque aliter sonabunt, quam si hxc
