This Latin appears between the 2 part inventions and the Sinfonias (or 3 part inventions). I get the gist of it, but the online translation is unsatisfactory.

Anyone?

There are still 15 Sinfonias, for three obligatory voices.

Wish I could help, but I only play English piano...


Casio PX-S3000
Nope, no issues with it at all.
Took lessons from 1960 to 1969, stopped at age 16.
Started again in July 2020 at age 67. Lots more fun now!

Thanks. Where does the online translation get "bandaged?"

Sequuntur - they follow (from sequor - to follow)
adhuc - hither to; we say follow from rather than follow to
15 Sinfonias
tribus = three
vocibus = voices or parts
obligatis = obligatory but in music we use the Italian obligato


Following from here are 15 Sinfonias, for thee obligato parts

Thanks.

Google translate says:
"There are still 15 Sinfonie, for voice and bandaged"

Maybe google was thinking about that time a couple years ago when the stray and possibly rabid cat tried to eat my hand.

That is curious! I had to look it up… Have been brushing up on my Latin for the last while.

Apparently, the Latin verb “obligare” has the same dual figurative and literal meaning that its translation, the English term “bind”, implies.

E.g. you can figuratively bind someone to an agreement or duty, in the sense of obligating them; or you can literally bind a wound, i.e. bandage it.

So, the form of the verb here could mean mandatory, obligatory, obbligato, or…bound up and bandaged. So Google Translate decided to go with the latter. It must have its AI reasons.

PS. The cat bite sounds awful. I got bitten once by a cat on my face… Because it was mad. Not rabid mad, just mad because I was very ignorantly trying to break up a cat fight! (well, I thought they had finished…)

Oooh--good thinking cefinow!

And, yes, the cat event was a little nuts. Fortunately, my hand ended up not significantly worse than it was before, and I tolerated the rabies shot series well. I did keep it bound for several weeks!
