    - p.III : 'Effective use is made of the juxtaposition of high and low tonal levels, for instance in bars 133 ff. of the motet Beatus homo, or at the words eruperunt abyssi, where the soprano descends suddenly into the plagal reaches of what has hitherto been an authentic mode. In the following section et nubes rore concrescunt, the opening imitation moves again within the limits of the authentic mode, though it obviously prefers its higher notes.'
