Description

This leaf is from a medieval Antiphonal or Responsorial Manuscript, of German origin, circa mid-fifteenth century, in Latin, on vellum (174x125 mm.). The script is in a Monastic gothic hand and the music consists of six staves of four-lines each. Musical staves are in red ink with notes and text in black ink. The larger and more decorative initials are in red or red and black. A Responsorial is any psalm, canticle, or other sacred music which is recited or sung after a reading during the church service. Customarily, this occurs with a cantor or small group singing verses while the whole choir or congregation responds with a refrain. Traditionally, Responsorials are sung in Gregorian Chant. Verso: six lines of music consisting of four line staves with staves in red ink and notes and text in black ink. Condition of this leaf is Fine [F].
