Description

Single leaf of a gradual, written in central Italy, ca. 1100-1150. It contains 9 lines of Beneventan musical notation with a red F-line and a barely visible yellow C-line. The hand is late Carolingian. The text and music are portions of the propers for the Feast of the Archangel Raphael. The leaf was later used as a cover for a book in the 16th century.
