Conclusion – Lacrimae is attributed tentatively to Pescard (1400-1474)
Premise – It was based on a SINGLE treatise
Recently, several treatise have come to light which shows Pescard as the composer. This implies that Pescard must have been the composer but it is not so because these lend no support.
Here our conclusion is that “Recently found treatise do not lend any support”. We have to find the premise on which this conclusion is based?
A – It is a contender, since the treatise at that time misidentifies the composer then it is possible that Pescard is not the composer. It is doubtful in sense that we cannot be sure that ecev the treatise which mentions Pescard is wrong. Creates ambiguity.
B – It is shell type answer, if they had no evidence then it means that Pescard could and could not have been.
C – Exactly opposite answer
D – Another contender and better than A. If the later had no source but the earlier they were bound to repeat the same context, thus do not lend any support.
E – Loser, we are not discussing about 1600
