(Philadelphia, United States, Free Library of Philadelphia, John Frederick Lewis Collection of European Manuscripts)
PublisherFree Library of Philadelphia
- Initial L with Moses before the burning bush
- This initial begins the first response for Matins of the first Sunday in Lent, 'Locutus est Dominus ad Moysen dicens descende in Egyptum ...' (The Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 'Go down to Egypt').
- This image shows the reverse of a cutting with a decorated initial from an antiphonary. The musical notation is an early form of a style of notation called 'Hufnagelschrift' that is found mostly in late medieval Germanic chant manuscripts. It is so called because of the resemblance of the neumes to a horseshoe-nail, which in German is called 'hufnagel.'
