P-Pad (Porto) Arquivo Distrital NOT/CNPRT01/001/0081
Chants for the octave of Epiphany. On the verso, a rubric states: "Per horas diei antiphonae de laudibus".
On the bottom margin of verso side, dates 1630-1631, in black ink, referring to the period of time comprised by the register book previously bound by this fragment. Above the dates, a name, possibly that of the scribe of the register book ("Aleixo [...] de Araujo"). In the extreme bottom, the number of the register book is inscribed ("Lib. 69")". On the right margin of the recto side, at bottom: current shelf-mark (NOT/CNPRT01/001/0081) and alternative shelf-mark (K/7/5/2-7.2), both in pencil.
Previously binding a register book from the Notary of Porto (1630-1631). Contents are paralleled in the Braga use. The circulation of the antiphon "Hodie completi sunt dies magnae" appears to be quite restricted to the Iberian Peninsula (e.g., Braga, Compostela, Toledo and Huesca). Out of this geographical realm, it only seems to appear in the antiphoner of Marseilles (F-Pn lat. 1090) and in the Breviary of Saintes (F-Pn lat. 16309). E-Tc 44.2 has a lacuna for the corresponding feast (Octave of Epiphany).
Standard square notation on red pentagram.
