Juan Bautista José Cabanilles (1644 – 1712) was a Spanish organist and composer at Valencia Cathedral. He is considered by many to have been the greatest Spanish Baroque composer, and has been called the Spanish Bach.
See for more information one of my other Cabanilles uploads.

According to the title this Tiento should be played on a divided manual.

The accompaniment is in the bass half of the manual and the jubilant voice, played on the Cornet 10 (!!!) on the discant, devided on the central c.

The way it should be played is suggested by the Primero Tono, the first Modus.

Various interpretations of the "character" imparted by the different modes have been suggested. Two such interpretations, from Guido D'Arezzo (995-1050) and Adam of Fulda (1445-1505) are:

Guido of Arezzo (c. 990- 1050)
The first is serious.

Adam of Fulda (c.1445-1505)
The first mode lends to any feeling
