Annotation: 
La numeración en este catálogo de Alfonso de Vicente no sigue el orden numérico de las signaturas de los libros de polifonía; primero se agrupan los libros y libretes impresos (Impresos 1 a 7) y luego los manuscritos (8 a 12). La correspondencia entre la numeración del catálogo (que también utilizamos como sigla en nuestro catálogo) y las signaturas es la siguiente: E-Asa 01 (=Sig. 3); E-Asa 02 (=Sig. 5); E-Asa 03 (=Sig. 4C, 4F); E-Asa 04 (=Sig. 4C, 4D, 4F); E-Asa 05 (=Sig. 4B, 4D, 4E, 4F, 4G); E-Asa 06 (=Sig. 4A); E-Asa 07 (=Sig. 1A, 1B, 1C, 1D, 1E); E-Asa 08 (=Sig. 2); E-Asa 09 (=Sig. 6); E-Asa 10 (=Sig. 4H); E-Asa 11 (=Sig. 7); E-Asa 12 (=Sig. 38).
