In his dissertation John Ward says -

"The last piece...is una baxa de contrapunto. No identification of the baxa=basse dance is offered by the composer, nor is it immediately clear whether the bass, discant or musically ill defined alto-tenor carries the borrowed material."

There is a lot more besides about the possible identity of the dance in question.

Hope that's helpful.
