Psalms 69 - followup

I extended the analysis of this psalm and also accidentally wiped out some text. It is now restored.

Incipit - single colon, upon lilies (for students of Torah)
e ill,e ill,e - as I suggested, mimicking the 5-1 cadences that close the strophes of the poem. (To be proven by analysing some of the other poems with the same music for the inscription.)

Conclusion - strophes are widely varying in length - as are my first versions based on recurring words, but the strophes are not equivalent. I leave the diligent to compare them. They can be reconciled. When the accents are analysed in their tonal relationships, there is much more information in them.

2-3 both bicola, final cadences 5-1, 2-1
e f# ^A C g B e
e C B g B ^A f# ger-rev,f# e

4-5 both tricola, final cadences 4-1, 5-1
e B zar,d ole,f# f# ^A ger-rev,e
e C B zar,d ole,f# B g B ^A f# ger-rev,B e

6-8 bicolon, tricolon, bicolon, final cadences 2-1, 4-1, 5-1
e rev,B g ^A ger-rev,f# e
e zar,C pas,zar,f# rev,ole,f# B B ^A ger-rev,e
e g B ^A g B e

9-12 4 bicola, final cadences 2-1, 2-1, 5-1, 5-1
g B ^A ger-rev,f# e
e B B ^A f# ger-rev,f# e
e B B ^A g B e
e B B ^A g B e

13-17 5 bicola final cadences 2-1, 2-1, 2-1, 5-1, 5-1 (verse 15 - recap of verse 1 this concurs with the major division of the poem into 2 sections. Perhaps the three-fold 2-1 cadence as at the very end is a better marker.)
e B g B ^A ger-rev,f# e
e C e pas,paz,C rev,f# ^A ger-rev,f# e 
e B g ^A f# ger,e rev,e

e C B g B ^A g B e
e B g B ^A f# ger-rev,B e

18-19 bicola, final cadences 2-1, 5-1
e B g e ^A e ger-rev,f# e
e B B ^A g B e

20-21 bicolon, tricolon, final cadences 4-1, 5-1
e C rev,B g ^A ger-rev,e
e C e f# rev,e ole,f# B B ^A ger-rev,B e

22-27 all bicola, final cadences 2-1 (5 times), 5-1
e B B ^A ger-rev,f# e
e B B ^A f# e
e B g ^A ger-rev,f# e
e f# ^A f# ger-rev,e
e f# ^A ger-rev,f# e
e B B ^A g B e

28-30 all bicola, final cadences 2-1, 2-1, 5-1
e g ^A ger-rev,e
g e B ^A f# ger-rev,e
g B ^A g B e

31-34 all bicola, final cadences 2-1, 2-1, 2-1, 5-1
e B B ^A f# e
e B g f# rev,f# e
e B B ^A f# ger-rev,f# e
e B B ^A ger-rev,B e

35-37 all bicola, final cadences 2-1, 2-1, 2-1
g B ^A ger-rev,e f# e
C pas,zar,C rev,g B ^A f# ger-rev,e
e B g ^A f# ger-rev,e

By the way - I changed the mode. Locrian isn't one that SHV ever chose.
