   IM-3900 - Important manuscript choirbook leaf - c. 1440-50



IM-3900:(580x410mm 22 x 15 ) Original manuscript leaf from an important manuscript Choirbook. This beautiful four-line stave musical sheet is on animal parchment, written in liturgical gothic script. Interlinear musical notation is in black on a red four-line stave. 

The elaborate illuminated initial is in a floral motif and in colors of red, pink, brushed gold, orange, blue and green with white tracery, on a burnished gold ground. The flamboyant border contains acanthus and flowers of red, pink, blue, green, brushed gold and burnished gold.

From a Gradual of the Benedictine Monastery of Santa Giustina of Padua, 1440-50.

A series of richly decorated choirbooks was made for S. Giustina in Padua in the early to mid 15th century. There are now four in the Biblioteche Capitolare in Padua.

The large illuminated E begins a prayer in honor of Apostles Philip & James.

This leaf was formerly in the collection of C.W. Dyson-Perrins (noted English collector of the late 19th & early 20th centuries).
