A Troper written for the monastery of Heidenheim, Written in two hands of the 11th century at Heidenheim, diocese of Eichstädt
A Troper (see MS. Bodl. 775) written for the monastery of Heidenheim, consisting of:
- Fol. 3, Sequences, preceded by the prefatory letter of Notker imperfect at end, one leaf being lost, with marginal and (added) interlinear neums
- Fol. 60, 'Tropi Proprii' (the first leaf wanting) throughout the year
- Fol. 82, 'Tropii Ordinarii'to Kyrie Eleyson, etc.; both and with interlinear neums, in a different but contemporary hand
Among the additions are:
- Part of the versus Salve lacteole (on fol. 1r, before which a leaf is lost, cp. fol. 88v)
- Sequences for st. Bartholomew (fol. 90v)
- St. John the evangelist (fol. 91v)
Etc., all perhaps of the 12th cent. Facsimiles of fols. 28v, 29r 75v, 76r are in E. W. B. Nicholson's Early Bodleian Music, 1913, pl. 34, 35, cp. pp. lxii-lxvi.
At fol. i is an argument by the rev. Η. M. Bannister, tending to show that this is a St. Gall Benedictine troper, written for Freising or more probably Eichstädt. [In Analecta Hymnica, vol.xlvii (1903) I accepted the Heidenheim origin as suggested by Mr. Nicholson, op.cit. H.M.B.].
