Description

Bifolium from a late eleventh or early twelfth-century gradual. The text contains portions of the mass for Palm Sundy and tracts for Holy Saturday. As the text is not continuous, the bifolium apparently formed outer leaves of a gathering. The ruling is dry point and the leaves contain twelve lines of text and music on a single-line staff. The notation is in Aquitainian form. There are fourcapitals in red and the hand is in a continental minuscule in a protogothic form, perhaps from Limoges or Narbonne.
