    • 1959, The Musical quarterly - Volume 45, page xlvi:
      He starts out by saying that there are three sights, the mene, treble, and quadreble, but actually he discusses only two, the treble and quadreble, both of which are read at the transposition of an octave.
    • 1991, Blanche Gangwere, Music history during the Renaissance period, 1425-1520, page 25:
      The voices include a counter (always below the tenor), a countertenor (moving above and below the tenor), mene, treble, and quadreble.
    • 2003, Willi Apel, ‎Don Michael Randel, The Harvard Dictionary of Music, page 780:
