Josquin: details of the last cadence
cadence Superius  [Superius] I hardly understand the last symbols: breve, semibreve, ?, semibreve, longua?
cadence Altus  [Altus] Here again the symbol under the fermata is not obvious to me!
cadence Tenor  [Tenor] If the symbol under the fermata is a semibreve, then this latter note is not an upbeat to the last longua, while it is probably the case for the two upper parts.
cadence Bassus  [Bassus] Same symbols than in tenor part. Thanks to those who'd their hints or solutions, which, of course, won't be published without explicit allowance.
See below the solution sent by Rick Arnest, and published here with his kind permission.

According to Rick, the symbols in this cadence are just a way to insist on the fermata ! Therefore, the end is, as usually, made of single long notes, held ad libitum. I've changed my MIDI file accordingly. Thanks to Rick - please tell me/us if you disagree !
(Rick also commented that in a liturgic performance one would repeat the first part, to take in account the Kyrie-Christe-Kyrie sequence).
