RFV of the Latin sense:
- "the usual authorities" only cover old Latin.
Does the definition even make sense? cantus is the "principal voice". Can't the principal voice be a tenor, alto or bass? Wouldn't it be more likely to have numbered voices (first voice = principal voice = cantus, second voice, third voice, ...) which then could have any of the Stimmlagen or "musical parts or sections" (tenor, alto, bass, soprano)? German wikipedia should state that once the tenor was the principal voice and for those times, the above wiktionary definition doesn't seem to make sense. -22.214.171.124 02:06, 17 May 2017 (UTC)
