Accession number 2010.627
Title Giant Hymnal Page
Date before 1480
Notes This is a very large choir page measuring approximately 14 ½ inches wide by 20 ½ inches high. (One large book set before the choir could be seen by all the singers.) It is on heavy vellum with 4 line staves that help date it before 1480. It has two beautifully rubricated letters in blue and red ink, a large K beginning the word Karitas and A beginning the word Alleluia. The page is numbered 172, thus showing it was taken from a very large hymnal. It is framed so both sides can be viewed.
