    This editor has done a great misservice by adding constantly changing time signatures and especially by adding triple meter where it doesn't exist. Instead, the 'triple metered' sections should be felt as syncopations off the presiding tactus. This would give the music forward motion and a sense of completion...

    when it comes to land on the important syllable at the end of the phrase.
