Type of notation:
Aquitanian (Portuguese variety)
Simple decoration. Plain initials alternatively in blue and red. The only remarkable initials are two decorated "B" and "D" which signal the first responsories of Matins for the Vigil of Pentecost and Trinity Sunday. A display script in red gives the name of the liturgical occasions. Text and notation in black. Neumes around a red line. The notation is characterized by an uneasy distinction between lozenged and square neumes; sometimes the former clearly indicate the location of the semitone; other instances are ambiguous.
