Each folio: c. 235 x c. 330
Type of script:
Type of notation:
Slightly decorated capitals and initials, on red.
Inscriptions and marks:
On folio Ar, upper half, there's the following enframed inscription, starting with a cross sign: "Concordia del Abad con el cabildo sobre funciones [y(?)] otras cosas".
The Aquitanian notation is of an Iberian variety. The fragments ("Fragmentos") 1, 11, 12, 14, 16, 18, 21 and 22, held in the Archivo Capitular de la Catedral de Tui, belonged originally to one and the same antiphoner. They previously served as covers for a register book (see "Inscriptions and marks" above, where the inscriptions identify the book). The present "Fragmento 14" has quite rare non-CAO proper chants for the feast of Hilary of Poitiers, their ordering being identical with the one in the Aquitanian antiphoner E-Tc 44.2.
