Contributor

Ege, Otto F.

Description

Leaf 8. "Graduals are the books containing the chants for celebration of the mass. Engish manuscripts of this early date are rare. This volume, with the uncertain strokes in the script, seems to indicate that the transcriber was unaccostomed to writing in this small scale. There are four and five line staves, and the "F" and "C" lines are indicated. Most of the various forms of written notes can be found on each leaf of this book.Those occuring more frequently are punctum (L. punctum, prick), a single note
virga (L. virga, rod), a square note with a thin line attached
podatus (L. pes, foot), two square notes, one above the other
climacus (L. climax, ladder), a virga note with two or more diamond shaped notes"(Ege).
