Terminology question. I have no clue what either "pulse" or "HIP/pre-HIP" refer to.
Never heard the terms before.
PULSE: as I use the term, the "heartbeat" of the music. "Rhythm" is pretty much an interchangeable term.
HIP: Historically Informed Performance; Historically Informed Practice. The academically preferred approach toward to playing any music written more than about half-an-hour ago. In this context, I prefer the admittedly inauthentic rhythm/pulse diagrammed on the left side of this graphic:
As mentioned above, Rick Nobis accompanied Pepe Romero on tour with this piece (and others, notably Morton Gould's "Troubadour Music" suite for the Romeros Quartet) some years ago. Rick tells me Pepe preferred the simpler left-side rhythm at that time, and I also prefer playing it in that way. I am also 100% aware that the music is written (and correctly played!) with the rhythm/pulse shown on the right side of the picture. A matter of preference.
