Held at the Weston Library

  • Request

A Dominican Sequentiary, the musical notes on a 4-line stave: at fol. 20 is 'In festo beati Dominici sequenlia', and at fol. 25 one 'In festo beati Augustini.'

(fols. 55-62) are in a rather later hand than the rest, and contain the 'Inicium sancti euangelij secundum Matheum' (i. 1-16), with musical notes, followed by an Alleluia verse and Kyries.

On fol. 54v is 'Ad magnum episcopum Albertum, magnum etiam musicum' (16th century?).

Summary Catalogue note: I attribute this volume to the last quarter of the 13th century E.W.B.N.
