“Cuncti Simus” is an edition from Llibre Vermell de Montserrat. The original melody dates back to the late 14th century. The score can be also found on CPDL. However, Soto includes some suggestions about instrumentation and performance ideas. Set in the Dorian mode this song is an earworm to end all earworms. Adding percussion, flute or other woodwinds, and a string instrument of some type will make the 14th century come alive!
