I transcribed this baroque vocal and continuo piece:

I had a bit of a puzzle with the notation. In a few places, there are pairs of ceiling brackets around pairs of notes; I've notated them with ordinary square brackets in Staff Text. (The first appearance is measure 18.) I asked about it on Stack Exchange, and no one there had an answer:…
Does anyone recognize that notation? The piece sounds pretty much as I'd expect, even if I don't know what the ceiling brackets mean.
