Paris, Bibliothèque Nationale, ms. lat. 776
Deluxe Facsimile Edition

OMI is pleased to announce a deluxe facsimile edition of the "Albi" Gradual, a beautiful 11th-c.
chant source with Aquitanian notation. The manuscript, dated c.1079, and not published before, is
believed to be from St. Michel-de-Gaillac in southern France, near Albi, the town from which it gets
its name. It consists of 155 folios in a format of 28 x 40 cm. Besides the chants for the mass (winter-
spring temporale plus sanctorale from Advent I to Whit Sunday), it contains prosulas, offertories
with verses, and a tonary, typical of many graduals of the period.
