17th C. European Vellum Antiphonal Sheet Music

Lot 0331 Details

Description
Continental Europe, Baroque Period, ca. 17th century. A two-sided vellum page, hand-illustrated with antiphonal musical annotation and lyrics in Latin. Large capital letters are delineated in red with gold highlights. In addition, there is a beautiful floral border delineated in a gorgeous palette of lavender, scarlet red, cerulean blue, spring green, citron yellow, and white with gold highlights as well down the left side of the obverse. This page came from an antiphonary, one of the liturgical books created for use by the liturgical choir in the Roman Catholic Church. An antiphon in Christian music is a responsory by a choir or congregation, often a Gregorian chant. Two choirs sing in alternation, one singing the verses of a psalm and the other singing a refrain (the antiphon). Antiphonal chants have a fascinating history and reflect the ancient choral traditions of the Church. Examples of these chants are the Introit and Communion. Size: 25.75" L x 20" W (65.4 cm x 50.8 cm)

Provenance: ex-private Ventura County, California, USA collection

All items legal to buy/sell under U.S. Statute covering cultural patrimony Code 2600, CHAPTER 14, and are guaranteed to be as described or your money back.
