Description of the notation: 

Large size neumes around a red line. Custos. The axis of the notation is perfectly vertical. Lozenge is used systematically to mark the lower note of the semitone (E or B). The difference between a lozenge and a more or less square punctum is always clearly defined. The lozenge is used either isolated or as part of ascending and descending patterns of two or more notes on one syllable.
