Condition of document

Two mutilated fragments are the two parts of one bifolium. The bifolium has been cut through the writing space of folio B. These fragments show wear and damage typical of that resulting from use for the binding of a book of documents. The chant content on the outer sides is faded and added annotations evidently relate to the bound materials. The chant content of the inner sides is well preserved.

Bifolium; 1 column and 8 lines of text per folio. Fragment A: 250 x 385; writing area: 185 x 275. Fragment B: 305 x 385; writing area: 190 x 275


Ar, Av, Br, Bv

Some annotations and alterations have been added between lines most probably by a user of the antiphoner from which the bifolium was taken: the verse Zelus was replaced by "avertantur retrorsum et eru[bescant] qui cogitant mihi mala". These annotations suggest correction and re-ordering of the chants. Also some alteration to the notation (antiphon Deus).
