This easy-to-read modern tablature should be completely faithful to Alonso Mudarra's original tablature. Let me know of any errors you find. Donald Sauter.

Short ID:  AM11.
Title:     La segunda parte de la gloria de la misa de faysan regres (Josquin).
Composer:  Alonso Mudarra.
Source:    Tres Libros de Musica en Cifras para Vihuela...  
           Libro I, folio X verso.
Date:      1546.
Facsimile: Chanterelle, p44.

Tuning:    Vihuela tuning.
Time sig:  Moderato. ("C" on Mudarra's 3rd line. See general Mudarra comments.)  

Fixes and modifications (M=measure r=rhythm s=string):
  All rhythm values have been halved.
  M32 original showed no rhythm symbol, implying 8ths still in effect 
    throughout.
  M81 original rhythm was (half) 4er (4er 4er). Changed to 4er 4er 4er 4er 
    here. Perhaps Mudarra meant half 4er 8th 8th. Note that there are 
    allignment dots on r2 r3 and r4. Allignment dots are provided under each 
    appearance of a new rhythm symbol, and none of these 3 alternatives is 
    consistent with that convention.

Tablature elements to be added by hand:
  Let ring as long as possible (see general Mudarra comments): M49r1, m69r1, 
    m75r2.
  Large 3 printed above the beginning of m89 to denote the time signature 
    change. Below that measure he wrote, "Cum senctu spiritu. Tres minimas 
    al compas."
  Fermata on very last chord.

Suggested simplification (if need be): 
  ____________
  |__________|
  |_4______4_|
  |_5_ to ___|
  |_4______4_|
  |_2______2_|
  |__________|

  Also, here is a simplified version of the staff with leading measure 90.
  * denotes a modified chord.
