A set of divisions on the traditional tune Quadlings Delight (also known as Goddesses).
Note that certain aspects of the score could not be reproduced in NWC, thus many of the groupings written as triplets should be sextolets, and the ornamentation should be notated using strokes across the stems of the notes, not with grace notes.
One aspect is quite at variance with modern notational conventions. In particular, the time signature only indicates the basic length of the beats, not the measure lengths. The bars are placed at irregular intervals, matching the phrasing, without the time signature changing.
