Summary

This item is from the Sanctoral section of a Breviary of Dominican Use. Its written content comprises the last section of the ninth response and verse and the Gloria for Matins, and three antiphons for Lauds, for the Office for the feast day of St. Vincent Ferrer, (5 April). The chants are written as four line verses. It is possible that the author of the text is Martialis Auribellus, superior of the Dominican Order from 1453. The notation is a diastematic quadratic with divisions, 4 line staff and rubricated. The style of its script is gothic textualis (rotunda) and specifically littera bononiensis (Italian Bolognese gothic book script), and its place of origin is thought to be Bologna or in Tuscany.
