The first is serious,

the second is sad,

the fourth is harmonious,

the fifth makes happy,

the sixth is devout,

the seventh angelical,

and the eighth is perfect.

The first mode lends to any feeling,

the second is suitable for the sad things,

the third is vehement,

the fourth has tender effects,

the fifth is fitting for those who are happy,

the sixth for those of proven piety,

the seventh belongs to the youth,

the eighth one to the knowledge .

 

– Adam of Fulda (c.1445-1505)
