Remarks: The end of the soggetto (the diatonic descent) is used as a counter-soggetto of its own, becoming independent on 'circumdabant'. This fact is important for Sohier will use this characteristic to produce a figuralism. I consider that the third entry, on the contra, starts one M later, for it is the only one that is 'flexed'.
