1.13 — Auis haec magna

NotationDate10th c.; ?
NotesA light and finely notated script, whose remarkable feature is the variety in size and angle of the signs used to represent single pitches: the signs extend from barely legible marks through to virgae and are written on vertical, diagonal and horizontal axes. The notator added an extra syllable accompanied by a neume to the second line, while leaving the first syllable unnotated: where the text scribe copied 'ad astra tendit', the music scribe notated 'astra tetendit'.
