Catalogue of variantsVariants in the following catalogue may be selected by any column and sorted by any combination of source, piece, type, and subtype.
To select variants:
Click the funnel next to the box under a column heading and check categories to include.
To sort and group variants:
The default sort order is: Source (prints, with Choralis II first, then manuscripts), Piece (liturgical order), Voice (D, A, T, B), Location (verse, if applicable, then measures). Useful modifications to the default display include:
- To retain the default order, but display the sources and pieces as groups, drag the column headings for source, then piece, to the "set row groups" box. This provides visual clarity and shows the number of items in each category and subcategory.
- To sort by piece, then source, drag the same column headings to the "set row groups" box in the opposite order.
- To collate the variants in multiple sources, so that their corresponding variants are adjacent, group the variants by piece, then location, by dragging the column headings as above.
- To group results by type, and optionally by subtype, drag those column names to the “set row groups” box. This analysis is useful for determining the number of variants of each type in a given source and for observing the nature of the specific variants within each category. It provides the clearest results if only one source is selected at a time. The order of the variant types will be determined by the content of the search; it will not be alphabetical.
