P-G (Guimarães) Arquivo Municipal Alfredo Pimenta C 1429
The fragment contains some readings on the recto which continue on the verso. Here, at the bottom of the right column we can read the beginning and some excerpts from a responsory whose mutilated text has not been identified. Apparently, none of the responsories currently included in the Cantus Index catalogue contain the text we can read on P-G C 1429.
Large size neumes. The difference between a lozenge and a more or less square punctum is always clearly defined. The axis of the notation is vertical. The lozenge is randomly used at different heights always as part of compound neumes in a descending melodic movement. The lozenge is not used in isolation.
This fragment belongs to a group of fragments currently held in P-BRs and P-G which share the same style of notation: P-BRs Fragments 1, 3, 10 (fragments 1 and 3 originally belonged to the same codex); P-G C 1372, C 1429, N 133 (fragments C 1372 and N 133 originally belonged to the same codex). From a notational standpoint, the main difference between these sources is the shape of the custos, however, P-G C 1429 and P 217 are too mutilated and today we don't know if custodes were originally written on these sources or not.
