Graduel de l’abbaye royale de Saint-Denis

Début XIe siècle, Paris

Bibliothèque Mazarine, manuscrit 384 [par] Claire Maître

Graduel de l'abbaye royale de Saint-Denis 

Paris, 2005. 21 x 30 cm, xxii, 395, 109 pp. Volume 3 of the series "Manuscrits Notés".

Halftone reproduction (with ten plates in full color) of a notated gradual and an abbreviated monastic antiphoner without notation (fols. 146-191) from St. Denis, Paris. The table of antiphons has been problematic to scholars due the fact the manuscript comes from the early 11th c., when the liturgy was partially transmitted orally, leading the monks to highly abbreviate the texts. Claire Maître has painstakenly recontructed this and has provided a detailed codicological description of the manuscript. Wrappers.
