Description:
Most of the verses have received neumes. According to K. D. Hartzell these were certainly added much later than the leaf's own date.
A large portion of the verso is covered by a fragment of a 15th century German manuscript glued to the leaf in an attempt at repair.
Conservation work performed to remove 4 fragments from verso; fragments are housed with manuscript leaf. July 2010.
UV detail image searchable by call number.
Abstract:
