Source type
Document type
12th century
Type of notation

Very simple decoration: only plain initials in red or black. Display script in red. Text and Aquitanian notation in black.

Three inscriptions on fol. 131r: "Caixa 249 n° 14" written in blue ink by a modern hand at the top left corner; "Santiago de ..." written at the top of the page; "Tombo de Igreia de São Tiago de..." written in the middle of the page. A modern hand wrote "52" in red ink at the top right corner of fol. 132v.
Condition of document

Central bifolium slightly damaged. The fragment was used as book cover. Fols. 131r and 132v are in poorer condition (external cover). There are many irregular cuts and tears along the borders. Loss of contents along the lower margin. Damp patches and creases challenge the reading of the fragment. A shred of parchment was used to patch a tear on fol. 132r. Some square Aquitanian neumes around a red line are visible on the shred.

Page layout

Size of the bifolium: 310 x 225 mm. Text area: one column of 295 x 155 mm. 30 – 31 text lines, many with music.


Original foliation in Roman numerals on fol. 132 ("cxxxii"). The analysis of the contents of the other folio allows us to demonstrate that the two folios are consecutive - the other being "131" - and that the fragment was originally a central bifolio.

P. Avelino de Jesus da Costa referred to this fragment as: "Caixa 249, 77 – Número 14 – Tombo de São Tiago de Cerdedo, 1549" (Cerdedo is located ca 60 km north-east of Braga).
