1.3 — Ad dominum clamaueram

NotationDate10th c. ineunte
TypeSankt Gallen
NotesThe St Gall neumes show significant variation in the angles of their strokes and may have been added as early as the first quarter of the tenth century. An unusually high degree of information is transmitted about relative pitch, with both considerable differentiation in the heighting of the neumes against the horizontal (especially in the first line, where there is greater amount of blank space above text), and through the use of a large number of significative letters (especially before the melodic repetition at Levavi). The text and neume scripts are now in different shades of brown ink and appear to be the work of different scribes. The ink colour of the neume script is similar to that of Tertio in flore on the previous folio and may be the work of the same scribe.
