About this Item

A leaf from large choirbook ? a Gradual. The term choirbook refers to a particular format of a volume of liturgical music, intended to be placed on a lectern in the midst of the liturgical choir and to be large enough for those standing in the choir to sing from. The Gradual is the oldest and most important of the four chants that make up the choir's part of the Proper of the Mass. The Gradual fills the time while something significant is being done, and represents the singing of psalms alternating with readings from the Bible. This particular choirbook was printed with 10 lines of text and music per page. The text is in black, with an occasional small letter in red. Each leaf contains music and words, and is printed in black and red; text is in black, with an occasional small letter in red, and the music is provided in black square notation on a four-line red staff. => This leaf has two tall decorative initials printed in red, as high as the text and music together. The initials vary from leaf to leaf. Folio extra (19.25" x 13.625"). 1 f. Crisp, wide margined leaf with slightest bleed-through from one side to another. Printed on handmade paper of 100% rag. A marvelous display, accent, or gift item. Bookseller Inventory # 34686
