Rhythmic asynchrony between voices 1 and 2 in Allemande?

• Mar 10, 2021 - 09:01

Okay, so I finished notating and analyzing the fugue. And now I'm doing the same for the Allemande. Except, the second voice in the treble seems to be a whole dotted eighth off from the rest. I thought that since the first irregular measure is 1/16, then the measure before the repeat would be + 3/16 making a whole extra beat. That doesn't seem to be the case. I thought I had the rhythm right, I was following the score. But Bar 40 of my score and Bar 9 of the Allemande are not the same once you get to beat 3, the second voice clearly reaches it's end before the other voices. What am I doing wrong here?

To correct myself, I was mistaken on the assumption of a typographical error. The issue is that all of those dotted 8th notes do not occupy the same voices as the double-dotted quarter notes.

Going from top to bottom, they are voices 3, 2, and 2.
