Music:Prague notation on five-line staffs inked in red. Using the punctum, pes, clivis(?), plica(?) or other liquescent, and other unidentified ligatures. Pitch given by F letter clefs on the third or fourth line of each staff (where visible). A B-flat accidental appears on fragment 1; as the clef has been obscured, it is not possible to say with certainty what pitch it modifies, but it is most likely an E-flat or B-flat. The large size of both notation and text as well as the low register of the chant melodies indicates that the original manuscript was indeed intended for choral performance. Undoubtedly produced in or near Prague due to the distinctive regional notation; the rhomb-shaped noteheads are characteristic of the city’s medieval sign system.
