NotesThe heavy appearance of the notation is also characteristic of the text. Since the ink colours of the two are now identical, and the thick strokes of the notation are roughly equivalent in dimension to the strokes in the text, it is possible that the text scribe was also responsible for the notation. Variation in formation is particularly prominent in the dash that constitutes the tractulus (1b), which ranges from a straight line, to a tilted 'r' form, to a tick shape.
The only point of similarity that can be established between the two surviving notated melodies is that both employ a more melismatic style for the refrain.
