The "viol" parts are notated using three different clefs: the first; alto, the second and third; tenor and the fourth (possibly violone) bass. The term "viol" probably refers here to instruments of the viol family, but parts for violas da braccia (also called "viol[a]s) were also sometimes notated using different clefs.
