Chants for Inventio Crucis and Vig. Joannis Bapt. in fragment P-BRam Nº14 Códices match the chants found in E-SAu Ms 2637 for the same feasts (Athanasii is not found in Ms 2637).
Description of the notation

Large size neumes. The axis of the notation is vertical. Custodes absent. The difference between a lozenge and a more or less square punctum is clearly defined. The lozenge is used consistently either in isolation or as part of a descending/ascending  pattern of two or more notes on one syllable.

Condition of document

Non-central bifolium formerly used as book cover and now in poor condition. Horizontal folds along the top and bottom margins hint that the fragment remained folded for long time. Fols. Av-Br were the external book cover and, for this reason, the parchment is now darker and, at times, unreadable due to stains and dirtiness. Folio A was severely trimmed with loss of contents, only ca 60% of its original size remains.

Page layout

Full page. 7 text lines with notation above.


The original foliation CLXXX(?)X is still visible on fol. Bv.
